The GCSE Media course will introduce you to the key theoretical framework, which includes Media Language, Representation, Media Industries and Audience. These concepts are used to examine a diverse range of media forms: advertising and marketing, film, magazines, music videos, newspapers, online media, TV, radio and video games.

You will analyse and question the appeal of media texts from a range of historical, cultural, political and social contexts.

Learning about the media involves both exploring and making media products. As such, this is an exciting course, which will allow you to pursue your own media interests and develop your practical skills.
