Media Studies / Astudiaethau Cyfryngau A & AS Level WJEC at Ysgol Gyfun Gwyr
This is an interesting, modern and exciting course which gives the opportunity for students to develop and express opinions on various subjects. This is a course for a student who can understand, use and create exciting and different ways of communicating in this digital age. Students will learn how to create professional and original media texts using the latest equipment. These can vary from scripting a story for the screen, to planning and producing a film, creating a website, to producing film posters, or a printed text such as a newspaper. The wide range of subjects studied will enable students to extend their understanding of moral, social, economic and cultural matters in our world today. Students will develop a critical opinion of the media not only in their study of a product and media concepts, but also by using creative skills in the production process. Research will be made into the production processes and the most recent digital technologies
The A Level course is open to any student and it is not necessary to have studied the GCSE course although this would be an advantage
There are many career paths open to students in this area including being a television or newspaper journalist, camera designer, computer games designer, teacher, lecturer, researcher, script writer, editor and presenter
