We are continually exposed to information though an ever-increasing range of sources and Media Studies investigates and examines how these sources operate and the impact they can have. The Media Studies student will develop a wide range of practical and analytical skills during the course and will gain a deep understanding of the role the media plays in the 21st century. Photography, video, film, TV, the music industry, advertising, documentary and the games industry may well be covered by the course you follow.

In order to do well in the subject you'll need to develop some practical skills such as video-making but you'll also need to be able to express yourself clearly and concisely in examinations. Marked by Teachers has thousands of essay examples which will really help you gain the understanding you need to succeed in the subject.

Whilst studying Media Studies at this level is great preparation for taking it to a further level it is also a good preparation for a range of other subjectssuch as Sociology, Economics and Business Studies. Media Literacy is an increasingly useful skill to have and highly applicable to a number of modern careers.
