You will study a wide range of different media which include Advertising and Marketing, Newspapers, Film Industry, Radio, Video Games, TV, Print and Online Magazines and On-line media. A level Media Studies centres around applying an analytical framework (media language, audience, representation and context) which you learn through discussion, analysis and debating. You will develop a range of technical skills required for both constructing and deconstructing media products.
You will be expected to think independently and to develop your own voice, and you will be encouraged to expand your knowledge outside of the classroom through reading and through engaging with a wide range of Media texts. For example, when studying the newspaper industry, taking a daily/weekly newspaper either in a print or online format will build your awareness of current affairs. You will need to live and breathe media.
