Careers In media Studies
Careers in Media Studies:
In December 2022, students in KS4 Media Studies explored the career options that Media Studies can open up to them!
In this session, students also had the opportunity to create their own commentary script and perform them to the rest of the class. This gave students’ a real insight into industry demands and just how many career paths Media Studies opens up for them once they leave full time education.
