Through a combination of theoretical and practical learning, Media Studies offers an essential insight into our place within the world, how we are perceived and how we perceive others. In this 21st century learning environment we aim to enrich students learning through innovation, opportunity and creativity.
Through the study of film, television, radio, the news, magazines, advertising, social media, music and the internet students will develop knowledge of digital literacy and actively engage with the world through investigative analysis, theory and hands-on production. When studying Media we encourage learners to engage with social, cultural and political ideas, ensuring they become independent thinkers, exploring their learning beyond the curriculum.
Social media is more about sociology and psychology than technology.
