Sister Rose Pacatte, FSP, Director of the Pauline Center for Media Studies welcomes you to the intensive 2009 summer Advanced Certificate in Media Literacy Program
Pauline Center for Media Studies (PCMS)
The dates for the one-week intensive Advanced Media Literacy Certification course for 2009 are set:
Sunday afternoon July 19 at 3:00pm - Saturday evening, July 25, 2009.
For the detailed syllabus, please see www.PaulineCMS.org.
I am happy to report that we did receive a partial grant and therefore we will be able to subsidize the tuition of $250.00 per student and giving each student a $55.00 discount:
The tuition is $195.00 per student.
The tuition includes text books and materials, optional evening sessions (podcasting, video production, and PowerPoint), continental breakfasts, tour of Sony Studios, coffee breaks and one dinner together at a local Chinese restaurant.
Please pray for our benefactor, Mr. Donohue.
One Donohue Scholarship will be granted to a bi-lingual teacher/pastoral minister who teaches and serves in English and one other language. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to apply. This scholarship is awarded on a first come basis. It covers only tuition costs as noted. Room, board and all travel are the student’s responsibility.
The course will take place at the Pauline Center for Media Studies, 3908 Sepulveda Blvd., Culver City, CA 90230.
The certificates (Basic and Advanced) are recognized by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles Department of Catholic Schools and the Department of Religious Education for continuing education, recertification and catechetical certification.
The Diocese of Orange recognizes the Certificate for recertification of the Basic Catechist Certificate and fifty-one hours towards the sixty hours required in advanced methodology for the Master Catechist Certificate.
The Diocese of San Diego recognizes the Media Literacy Course as a Catechist Specialization.
Goals & objectives
The aim of the Advanced Certificate Program in Media Literacy Education is to “train the trainers” to teach others media literacy skills for home, school, and the parish through various ministries.
