A Level Communications and Culture at Sir George Monoux College

Course description

Communication and Culture is a brilliant subject that covers every aspect of modern culture, including things like subcultures, celebrity culture, social networking and globalisation. At A2 it analyses these themes through theoretical frameworks like postmodernism, market liberalism, Marxism and feminism.

Course content

In Communication and Culture you will study all aspects of human communication, from who we are to pop videos and from body language to global designer brands. It's a discovery subject taking your experiences and matching them to the theory. It is not a subject of set answers and regurgitated facts.

Assessment

The course is 50% coursework plus a single exam at both AS and A2. The coursework includes essays and audiovisual presentation using Windows Moviemaker or a self-running Power Point. There is plenty of room for individual creativity and self-expression.

Future opportunities

Our students go on to study a range of subjects at university. A good number will continue with Cultural Studies at Russell Group universities such as Liverpool, Leeds or Sussex. Others will study a range of subjects from Politics, Media and Psychology all the way through to Art and Architecture.

The course provides ideal preparation for careers including Marketing, Advertising, Teaching and Architecture.
