Media Studies - Level 3 Diploma Course
The Media Studies - Level 3 Diploma Course is an introduction to this fascinating subject and will teach students about the history of media, showing comparisons with modern day media and will detail how modern day media affects all of our lives.
Access to Media and information technology has never been so important and is integral to most industries and professions and has become critical to policy making and teaching in government, schools and universities.
The nations media, press and information sectors are the subject to intense public concern and scrutiny and there is a growing acceptance of their unrivalled importance in our daily lives and with democratic institutions. Never before have the once separate worlds of news, stored knowledge, and the products of the mass media and entertainment industries converged locally, nationally, and globally, with even greater convergence certain to take place in the years ahead.
The Media Studies Diploma course makes clear the meaning of "media studies" in its widest context and will appeal to those wanting to explore this exciting and innovative vocational area.
