Level 2 Media Studies
Teacher in Charge: Mr P. Scott
Students will work in consultation with their teacher to devise a personalised learning and assessment programme which will compromise of up to a maximum total of 18 credits.
Media Studies is a mix of media making (film, social media content or other by negotiation) and the investigation of how we relate to the media around us. You will learn the core aspects of media creation, and how genre influences what we see on screen. This course can be redesigned and tweaked to suit students needs, experience and interests.
Media Studies and English are completely separate subjects, but they are intertwined and offer students who do both the opportunity to double dip. Technical skills are an advantage, but we cover everything you need to know.
