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.

"The CFF appeal is also very persuasive, but it is mainly the text which is persuasive. Without having read the text I would not have felt inclined to pledge money or to sponsor a child. I do not think it is very eye-catching either, and if I had seen this appeal in a magazine or newspaper I do not feel that I would have looked at it closely. I think the light-coloured page makes it look like a light-hearted issue. If it had been darker, I think I would have found it more shocking upon looking at it for a first time, and may have read further. Although I feel that the idea of using Amie as an example is a good idea, the way it is told makes it sound like a story, and in my opinion it does not sound true. With the Oxfam appeal, they used an actual villager (played by an actor) but I feel that this made it more realistic, because it was being told by an 'actual' person who had experience first-hand the suffering that goes on. For this reason, I find the Oxfam appeal to be more effective."
"In conclusion not all repositioning of a brand or even rebranding is successful, what made lucozade a success was its ability to once they had found out who their target audience was they could then seek to find out what those customers want and then through new product development produced and delivered those requirements more effectively than their competitors.
"In conclusion I feel that the most effective advertisement as a whole is Oxfam because it is set in landscape and not most advertisement are in landscape so it is quite a change. Also the fact that the information is on one side and the image is on the other side is very catchy. The picture of the little girl who is injured to the usage of guns is very upsetting. The figures are also very surprising to see the information is very informative.
My personal response to this particular advert is that guns should be banned all over the world so it prevents people smuggling them in. anyone caught with a gun should be punished and the only people with guns should be the police.
