What do students' study?

Students study the design, production and critique of products by using five key concepts that operate in the contexts of production and use. These key concepts are:

  • Technologies: the tools and associated processes that are used to create meaning in moving-image media production and use.
  • Representations: constructions of people, places, events, ideas, and emotions that are applied to create meaning in moving-image media production and use. 
  • Audiences: individuals and groups of people for whom moving-image products are made, and who make meanings when they use these products.
  • Institutions: the organisations and people whose operational processes and practices enable or constrain moving-image media production and use.
  • ​​Languages: systems of signs and symbols organised through codes and conventions to create meaning in moving-image media production and use. ​
