Media Studies GCSE at Shuttleworth encourages students to immerse themselves in media and explore how it shapes the world around them.
Students study a range of media forms from traditional print‐based newspapers, to 1950s advertisements in comparison to 21st century advertisements, to contemporary films and television shows such as Spectre and Luther. Issues such as representation of gender or ethnicity in contemporary and historical media text allows them to understand societal issues and how these are addressed through media. Students also research, design and create their own media product from a set of Eduqas NEA briefs.
