The Media Studies – Level 3 Diploma Course explains the meaning of “media studies” in its broadest context and will appeal to anyone wishing to gain a foothold in this exciting and innovative vocational area.
Probably at no time in history has access to, and proficiency with, media and information technologies been more important in the public mind, nor more critical to policy making and teaching in government, schools and universities. Nor at any time in the recent past have the nation's press, media, and information sectors been the object of as much intense public concern or scrutiny with a growing recognition of their unmatched importance in the conduct of our daily lives and 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.
On successful completion of this course students will receive an accredited Level 3 Certificate Award.
