Media Studies at Maiden Erlegh School

Course description

We live in a media-saturated environment. We get most of our information about the world from the mass media, therefore it is vital to study media organisations and texts and their influential role in today’s society. The media are also at the forefront of technological advances which affect our lives and the way we consume texts. Media education seeks to increase students’ critical understanding of the media: how texts work, how they produce meanings, how they are organised and how audiences make sense of them. Critical and creative powers are developed through analysis and production of media artefacts. This is one of the fastest growing areas in further and higher education and universities view the ‘A’ level qualification favourably.

Entry requirements

As the course is essay-based you should ideally have B grades or above in English or English Literature, although students who have achieved a grade C in English or English Literature will be considered.
