Media Studies AS/A2 at Sir Frederic Osborn School

Course description

Students will be introduced to the subject and
learn the analytical tools for reading media texts. Media
Representations and Responses
will develop your understanding of the debates which arise from
different media texts and examine how audiences can respond in
different ways.
In the AS year, the Media Production Processes will enable you
to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of media
industries through the production of practical coursework. You will
produce a Pre-Production piece and a final Production, linked to
the Pre-Production. This could be a storyboard or script which
leads to a film trailer or advertisement.
In the second year, Media Investigation and Production brings
together all elements of the course culminating in an investigative
research piece of coursework and a production informed by
the investigation. You will make a detailed study of three media
industries in the Text, Industry and Audience unit to understand
the relationships between media texts, audiences and the industries
which produce and distribute them.
Media A Level can take you into a variety of BA/HND programmes
at higher education or possibly entry level into careers in Film, TV,
Marketing, PR and Journalism.
