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