Media

Media Studies enables students to develop a critical understanding of a range of media texts (TV, games, music videos, websites, advertisements, magazines, graphic novels, news material) and the ways in which they are understood by different audiences.

Media Studies develops a critical awareness of media representations of individual groups and issues, and will debate the role of the media in today's society. The course enables students to use a wide range of technical terminology. Students create their own media texts using digital technologies, for example: DVD covers, storyboards, print adverts, scripts, film treatments and cinematic images.

The non-exam assessment means students will use cameras and software to create products such as advertisements, film sequences, TV show openings, radio shows, game designs and film promotion material.
