Course Description

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.

This Media Studies 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.

    A great experience

    I'm currently nearing the halfway point in my Media course and while I haven't been with them for long, it's been a great experience. Support is always willing to help and done efficiently.

    The only problem I've had so far is my tutor stopped replying for a while because she terminated her contract. Despite this complication, once I contacted support I was swiftly assigned a new tutor and back to submitting coursework as normal.

    Support was fantastic

    The course was easy to enroll on and was stimulating enough that it pushed me without being inaccessibly hard. I was able to complete the course within a year while working a strenuous full time job. The support given to me by tutors was fantastic and I will definitely consider doing other courses via NCC.
