Media Studies A Level at New College Telford

Course description

This course will suit you if you have a keen interest in the media, including TV, newspapers, magazines, films, internet, and new technologies. You should enjoy practical work and using technical equipment, as well as analysing how the media works and its influences on audiences.

Course content

You will enhance your enjoyment and appreciation of the media and its role in daily life, and develop a critical understanding of the media through engagement with media products and concepts, and through the creative application of production skills. You will explore production processes, technologies and other relevant contexts, become independent in research skills, and create your own production work. Areas of study include production processes, media representations and receptions, media investigation and production, and media text, industry and audience. Assessment is both coursework and exam based. This course is subject to government changes, so the specification will be developed and changed for September 2017.
