Media Studies A Level at Strode's College

Course description

The media is all round us and is changing every day. Many of us are not aware of the amount of media that we consume on a day-to-day basis or the power that it exerts over us. This course studies a range of media to analyse the ways in which it is constructed and how, as audiences, we are positioned by information we receive. NB: This course is mostly theoretical and there is a focus on analytical essay writing. There is some practical element within the coursework.
