Make Media Great Again

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

The media student's of Maynooth are tired of their treatment,  below we have outlined the main issues we face:

  • Misleading prospectus information about modules e.g scriptwriting
  • Lack of practical experience compared to other courses based on the same subject
  • Lack of communication from department
  • Not enough practical experience provided while the lecturers still expect us to film projects and edit with little experience paired with a short span to learn the needed skills 
  • Optional modules are fundamentally identical
  • Too many modules that revolve around theoretical media academia not enough to provide obvious marketable skills to future employers
  • Merging Digital Media and Media Studies has left an uneven balance for people. Those wanting to do Digital Media feel there's a lack of computer based modules whilst those wanting to do Media Studies feel there's too many computer based topics
  • Kairos contract ending puts the short film module into jeopardy for first years once they reach they're final year

We hope this petition will lead to a dialogue between the students and University, thus, leading to a resolution.
