This course leads on from the preliminary skills and understandings taught in the Years 8 and 9 courses, however students are welcome to join Media for the first time at Year 10 level. Across this course there is still a heavy focus on production skills, introducing photography, Photoshop and podcasting skills to go along with the already defined audio visual skills. Students will also have an introduction to the analysis side of media in the form of responding to media texts, which forms part of the upper school courses.

The frequency of this subject is TWO periods per week.

I enjoy Media because it is fun with so much to learn. It keeps me engaged all the time. Media allows you to use your imagination and be as creative as you can possibly be. You are given the opportunity to express your creativity through the many assessments that you have to complete throughout the year. I guarantee you loads of fun! Stefanie, Year 10 Media student

This subject can lead students onto both the ATAR Media Production and Analysis course, and the General Media Production and Analysis course in Year 11.
