GCSE Media Studies
Why do we teach this course?
The media landscape is wide and varied. Increasingly, companies need to have a strong media presence to advertise products and services, and the number of jobs in this area is increasing significantly. The Media Studies course will support you to use your English Language skills to analyse and create inspirational content. The skills you learn will help you to analyse your ideas in Design and Engineering and to improve your confidence with presenting both digitally and to customers and clients.
Why I should study Media Studies?
Companies are increasingly looking for well rounded employees who are able to confidently present and discuss their ideas with colleagues and clients. The Media Studies course at BMAT STEM supports students to develop their creative, analytical, research, and communication skills, through exploring a range of media forms and perspectives.
