A-level Media Studies

A-level Media Studies @ Bury St Edmunds Academy Trust County Upper School

At AS level, the course develops the ability to read texts with understanding, apply theory and explores the key concepts within the media. Students investigate the three media platforms of Broadcasting, Print and E-media and then produce coursework from this initial study. This coursework involves pre-production research and planning, a final production and an evaluative report. At AS level, the course also explores the cross-media topics of Text Content and Construction, Representation and Audience within the three media platforms and students are examined on their knowledge of these areas in a final exam.
