Media Studies at Fakenham Academy (College)
In AS Unit 1 (Media Representations and Responses) you will learn how to analyse a range of media texts, looking at how they are constructed, own they communicate meaning and what messages they convey.
In AS Unit 2 (Media Production Processes) you will demonstrate your media knowledge by producing a 'real' media text.
A2 Unit 3 (Media Investigation and Production) is a coursework unit in two parts. You will produce a research investigation of about 1500 words and then produce a media artefact which follows directly from the research study.
In A2 Unit 4 (Media: Text, Industry and Audience) you will study three different media industries; for example film radio and computer games.
It is not a requirement that students have studied Film or Media Studies at GCSE. However you should have an interest in various media forms and an awareness of issues surrounding media production. Students should have a grade C or above in English.
