Level 3 Media Studies

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms T. McMullan.

Recommended Prior Learning

Reasonable success in Level 2 Media Studies or English, or at the discretion of the HoD.

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 engage in a genre study, looking through history at the events that shape society's engagement with media texts. They will also plan, script and create a short film in a genre of their choice. This is a challenging and exciting programme which culminates in our annual Media Studies Film Awards, The Hoscars.
