AS and A2 level: Media Studies at Casterton College Rutland
Why study Media? Twenty years ago the media really meant printed publication, television and radio but now technology has opened a new world of communications through the internet, mobile phones and more besides. Most people are affected by the media but few have a good understanding of it and this course aims to put that right. What will I study? You study the principles behind different forms of media and the practice of how they are used. Later you even go on to create media products of your own. How will I study? Through a mix of investigations and practical projects. This is about analysing what happens already as well as creating new products.
C in English required. C in Maths preferred.
Progression Media is relevant to a lot more than just careers in the media since students learn a great deal about the modern world.
