Diploma in Media Studies

 Why Oxford Learning College

Introduction

This Quality Assured Level 3 Diploma course is designed to appeal to learners aspiring to obtain a solid foundation in media studies. This diploma will also appeal to those with an interest in journalism, advertising and global media considerations. Media Studies as a subject is one that can be approached from the dual perspectives of the Humanities and Social Science. Media Studies explores the nature and effects of mass media upon individuals as well as society. This is done by the analysis of actual media content and representations. Media Studies is a cross-disciplinary field, and it uses techniques and applies theories from fields of sociology, cultural studies, anthropology, psychology, art theory, information theory and economics.

The course consists of ten modules and concludes with an online examination;

 

  • Module One - Media History
  • Module Two - Media Ethics
  • Module Three - Media and Television
  • Module Four - Audio Production
  • Module Five - Photography and Typography
  • Module Six - Mass Communication
  • Module Seven – Journalism
  • Module Eight - New Media Development
  • Module Nine - Media and Web Design
  • Module Ten - Global Media

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Oxford Learning College has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet certain quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to an Ofqual regulated qualification but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills towards regulated qualifications in the future.

The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 3 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed by Oxford Learning College to meet specific learners' and/or employers' requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. ABC Awards endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

ABC Awards is a leading national Awarding Organisation, regulated by Ofqual, and the Welsh Government. It has a long-established reputation for developing and awarding high quality vocational qualifications across a wide range of industries. As a registered charity, ABC Awards combines 180 years of expertise but also implements a responsive, flexible and innovative approach to the needs of our customers.
