Communication & Culture AS/A Level at Nicholas Breakspear Catholic School

Course description

At AS, Units 1 & 2 provide an integrated and
complementary introduction to the study of
Communication & Culture. Both units deal
with the personal level of communication and
candidates’ own experience of cultural products
and cultural practices. The interaction between the
individual and the broader cultural environment is
a key area of investigation:
• Unit 1: Understanding Communication &
• Unit 2: The Individual and Contemporary
Culture: Portfolio
At A2, Units 3 and 4 build on the work established
in the AS level, providing an integrated and
extensive programme of study. Texts and contexts
are more challenging and there is greater focus
on theoretical approaches to contemporary
culture. Both units cover broader issues of cultural
reproduction and transmission, with a plethora of
critical opinions and perspectives; key concepts
switch from identity to power:
• Unit 3: Communicating Culture
• Unit 4: Communication and Culture in Practice:
