Media Studies - AS / A Level at St Alban's Catholic High School

Course description

We live in a mediated society; every day of our lives we are bombarded with messages

from multiple media texts. The media defines your life and the way you think about the

world around you. On this course, you will learn how media texts are constructed to

enable you to become an active consumer, rather than a passive one. You will develop

your critical awareness and learn to evaluate the workings of the media in order to assess

the issues and debates which continually surround the media.

Future opportunities

Media Studies is a valuable qualification for students wishing to study for any critical

studies degree. It also equips students with a strong range of transferable skills that

employers value, and provides students with practical skills for working in media

related jobs.
