Media Studies at All Saints School

Course description

How do we ‘read’ film? What do you know about the pop production line? Is the news telling the truth? Could you produce your own advertising campaign? If you would like to find the answers to these questions, Media Studies could be the course for you!
This course gives you the opportunity to examine the contributions which the mass media make to your understanding and enjoyment of the world. You will also explore relationships between audiences and production values. There will also be the opportunity to look closely at new technologies and their influence on today’s media.

Students will examine a wide range of media forms and consider the issues and debates surrounding them. They will engage in planning and research for pre-production projects. Students are expected to produce and evaluate their own media texts. Students must be prepared to involve themselves in personal research, critical reading, discussion, written work and production.
The course will be assessed through modules, the first 2 being taken in Year 12 to obtain AS level, which on its own makes an excellent 4th option to support any of the other subjects, particularly English or Theatre Studies. The next 2 modules will be taken in Year 13 to obtain A2.
