Media Studies at Thomas Knyvett College
The features of WJEC’s specification are: organised in terms of three study areas – media texts, their audiences and the organisations which produce and distribute them. This means that all topics studied are approached in the same way and students develop their knowledge and understanding as the course progresses, allows for students to develop research, planning and production skills through creative work at all stages in the course. This means that their learning is reinforced through exploring texts (textual analysis), research and planning work (preproduction) and production work (all internally assessed), Flexibililty in regards to the creative tasks and the project work which can be completed.
You could take this course to prepare for advanced level courses such as an A/AS Level in Media Studies or you may need to strengthen your grades by completing a foundation or intermediate vocational qualification.
