Media Studies

Media Studies is a senior subject offered to students in Years 11, 12 and 13. Students work towards NCEA qualifications and can enter NZ Scholarship in Year 13.

Students explore and investigate film genres and industries by looking at how they shape our society. They learn new skills in scriptwriting, narrative development, pre-production skills and in using camera equipment and editing software to create digital content. We make music videos, short films and documentaries and enter them into the Nelson College Film Festival and the Briefs Film festival.

Our exploration of the relationship between the Media and society empowers us to become critical and creative thinkers, ready to actively engage in our rapidly changing society.
