12MEDA

Level 2 Media Studies

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms F. Pearson

In our media saturated world, being able to decode, understand and create media content is becoming a vital skill. Media Studies combines sociology, psychology, film making, critical theory and history to give students a subject that is academically challenging, exciting, engaging and relevant. Students will study representations of gender and sexuality in the media; engage in a genre study, looking through history at the events that shape society's engagement with media texts; and plan, script and create a music video or film trailer in a genre of their choice. This is a challenging and exciting programme which culminates in our annual Media Studies Film Awards, The Hoscars.
