AS Media Studies, with 50 per cent of the course devoted to coursework, is designed to build upon your existing knowledge and understanding of media. In the Foundation Portfolio unit, you will have the opportunity to develop sophisticated technical skills using Photoshop and InDesign; gain an understanding of industry practices and then reflect on and evaluate your own work in relation to real media output.
A2 Media Studies builds on the skills you have gained in Year12 so that you will be better able to develop the required knowledge and understanding of a range of media industries and their institutional, technological and global contexts with a contemporary ‘synoptic’ understanding of the media. The coursework unit affords students the exciting opportunity to compile a relevant and impressive portfolio of practical work (video and print).
