Reasons to Study Media Studies

Studying A Level Media will develop your knowledge and analysis of a wide range of media texts; these will be studied in depth to mature your critical thinking skills and will give you the opportunity to grow in terms of your independence. In addition, the course will advance your organisational, creative and technical skills as you commit to the shaping and construction of your own media products.

Our Vision for Media Studies

The Media is powerful. It is persuasive in shaping the views of society. SJB students will learn to interrogate what has become so easily consumed in the media landscape. We aim to equip the students with essential 21st century skills and knowledge – media literacy, creativity, critical thinking, and employability.
