Media Studies at Shrewsbury Sixth Form College

Course description

In Media Studies we research and analyse a range of texts from advertising and marketing, television, cinema, the Press and Broadcast news. We learn specialist terminology to investigate who is constructing the text, how it is constructed and for what audience.

The AS course is assessed by an exam paper plus a practical project, for example scripting, shooting and editing a short film or documentary in a small group.

The A2 course is assessed by an exam paper, plus an independent research essay on a media topic or debate which each student chooses from an area of the media which interests them, and another practical production informed by the research.

Entry requirements

5 GCSEs at C grade or above.
