The media is now one of the most prevalent aspects of our society and you’ll gain an understanding of its important and relevance, as well as a greater understanding of its many forms and depth.

Throughout the course you will explore the way media is represented and received by audiences through its various forms, including marketing, music, advertising, video games, film or in print. You will also explore the varying media forms and products across television, mainstream media and online.

The Digital Technology and Multimedia department is home to dedicated Mac-editing suites, state of the art TV studio and professional recording, film and photography equipment. You will have access to these areas to improve your practical skills and get involved on enrichment such as Ashton TV.
