Level 3 Media Studies
Media Studies allows you to critically analyse how a genre connects to society, and makes significant changes in history and the attitudes of society. A significant part of the year is spent designing and then producing a magazine spread or short film. You will take part in planning, writing and producing the final product. You may have the opportunity to attend an OFLC ‘Censor for the Day’ event. This subject involves group work and will develop your technological skills.
What Knowledge Will I Develop?
Students will further their understanding of various roles in the media, by focusing on film. This includes many areas, from pitching an idea for a script or article. In this, students will become adept at using camera technology and editing softwares. In addition, the roles of the media producer, the audience and wider society are critically analysed in detail. In the genre and society study, students will develop skills around understanding different points in history and the relationship between a film genre and wider society.
