Media Studies is designed to allow Media students to draw on their existing experience of the media and to develop their abilities to explore as well as create media. It will enable students to investigate and create a wide variety of media formats, including traditional platforms as well as modern digital media technologies.
The course is based around investigating and understanding the media industry. This means that students will analyse and explore different types of media texts, such as films, magazines and websites, as well as making their own media products. They will learn to analyse from the Theoretical Perspectives of Representation, Audience, Industry and Media Language.
