Media Studies is a university-approved subject that is fun but challenging. You will develop critical thinking skills, creativity and self-management through a programme of themed learning.
At Level 2 our focus is horror films. You will watch and analyse a series of films before undertaking the planning, shooting and editing of your own mini-horror movies.
At Level 3 our focus is magazines. You will study the print industry and how it is changing and you will plan, research and produce your own magazine feature article spreads.
There is a fair amount of writing at both levels so it is a requirement that you have a minimum of 10 English credits at Level 1 or Level 2 for entry on to the course.
Media Studies opens up a broad range of job opportunities in the future, including filmmaking, television production, journalism and print production, digital media, marketing, teaching and public relations. You will develop a wide range of skills that will be transferrable to further education and any workplace setting.
