Media Studies *FEES PAYABLE* at Akeley Wood Senior School

Course description

WJEC's GCE in Media Studies aims to provide a coherent and integrated approach to studying the media at AS and A Level. The distinctive features of the specification are:

  • an introduction to analysing a range of media, including the rapidly developing digital media
  • an emphasis on the key role that representation plays in the media
  • a focus on the way audiences/users are positioned by the media but may still respond or interact in diverse ways
  • an opportunity to explore media issues raised in MS1 in a creative context as well as to develop appropriate production skills
  • an opportunity to research topics in the media which form the basis for production work, thus enabling students to develop research and production skills
  • a progression towards exploring the relationship between media texts, their audiences and the organisations which produce and distribute them.
