Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

It would be valuable if students purchased their own 8GB SD card. There are no compulsory costs. It is beneficial for students to access to their own digital camera. There may be a couple of trips to investigate media industries in Wellington. It is anticipated we will take part in the “Censor for the Day” event run by the Classifications Authority.

Recommended Prior Learning

Preferred: at least 15 credits from Media Studies 201. Students with a strong interest in film/documentary making/print media/media industries and a suitable number of credits from English results may be considered- please talk to the TIC of Media Studies.
