Course Overview

Also available as a Part-Time option – please select ‘Click here to contact us’ for more information.

The AS Level / A Level Media Studies is a full-time course located in the Sixth Form Academy (SFA). This course focuses on many things you already know and enjoy such as films, TV programmes, social media, music and advertisements.

We will teach you how to consider such products critically, thinking analytically about how they are created and consumed. Media Studies also involves practical work, where you learn the techniques involved for the production of your own media text. You might produce moving images such as an opening sequence to a film, television adverts, magazine articles and website advertising, using industry standard, recognised software (you will also have access to this outside of your college lessons). Learners go on to study specialisms and apprenticeships within the field which include graphic design, film making and journalism.
