Foundation Media Communication


This subject contributes to the overall aims of the UTS Foundation Studies program by introducing students to media communication forms, practices, and theories. This subject provides a framework for media analysis and creation using primary knowledge in media theory, meaning construction, sociocultural practices, and audiences. Students develop visual-spatial reasoning and apply systems to realise assignments informed by theory, research, critical analysis, reflection, planning, and production practices. Knowledge and skills gained from the course are transferable across learning contexts and support the development of academic and professional literacies.
