There are a number of reasons why students choose to take a summer course. It can help to connect the gap between different stages of academic study, or students may take a course to gain additional qualifications or training.

What is a Summer Course in Media? This subject covers a vast amount of topics including film, social media, design, news, media technology, and media history. Some courses may focus on all of them generally, or focus on one in particular. A media course fits in with a lot of degree curriculums, such as graphic design, advertising, marketing, journalism, and photography. Students may choose to take this summer course to supplement their studies while shortening their total program duration.

Students who take a media summer course often have a better learning experience because the classes are usually smaller and more intimate. This class can help students decide which media focus they would like to find a career in.

The costs involved with taking a summer course can vary significantly from one place to the next. The location and reputation of the school are big factors as well as the length of the program. Students are encouraged to get in touch with the school to find out what specific financial obligations will be expected.

Taking a media course is a helpful step towards a number of degrees. Depending on the student’s area of interest, an individual may choose to further their media study in areas such as media communication, media technology, print and digital media, media engineering, and web media. Graduates with a bachelor’s or master’s degree may choose from careers in graphic design, animation, communication, advertising, or journalism.

This three-week interdisciplinary course addresses the intersection of gender and media through developing a critical understanding of how ‘gender’ helps shape media texts and institutions and how media (understood to include all forms and genres of communication) structure our understandings of gender. The term ‘gender’ refers to constructed ideologies of femininity and masculinity in the public sphere as well as to the intersection of gender with other social identities – including cultural categories such as religion, race, class, and sexuality. -
