Academy of Media, Music, & the Arts
Students in the Media, Music, & the Arts Academy develop the ability to read, analyze, evaluate, and produce communications in written text, moving images, still images, and sound. Students will learn to read critically, interpret analytically, communicate effectively, and produce messages for both meaning and persuasion. Any field involving art, music, film, radio, video, television, theater, literature, journalism, or photography requires an understanding of effective communication.
Because some careers favor a broad background and others demand specialization, the Media Literacy courses will cover diverse areas. A student may create a program of courses spanning several areas, all relevant to a particular career area, or he/she may choose to explore one specific area in depth.
