Media Studies A Level at WQE College (Wyggeston and Queen Elizabeth I College)
The aim of the course is to develop a deep understanding of how the media works and to put this into practice with practical work. A wide range of media texts will be studied, using a comprehensive theoretical framework and a variety of advanced theoretical approaches will be used to support critical exploration and analysis. You will work from the product outwards to debate key questions about the contextual make-up of the media. Although many of the texts studied will be contemporary, there will also be an emphasis on older media forms as well. Added to this there will be a sense of the modern media as a global product and you will be engaging with the complex relationship between media products, audiences and media industries.
In addition to the standard College entry requirements this course also usually requires students to have achieved grade 5 or above in GCSE English Language.
