Year 13 Sports Media Studies (13SMS)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr B. Uy

Sports Media is an alternative Senior Media Studies course for Y12 and Y13 focused on the relationship between Media and Sport. Students can choose between this and the normal Y12 or Y13 Media Course. Students will analyse how sports broadcasts are built on media theory such as narrative, genre and semiotics, how sports broadcasts connect to their audiences and societies and will also get a chance to produce their own sports-related media (either a “broadcast” of a school sport, a sports news show or even podcasts and commentary). This course is suited to learners who are interested in what goes on behind-the-scenes of sporting media and/or have an interest in a potential career working in sports broadcasting, from sports journalism, production or even in the commentary booth.

The course also comes with UE Literacy Credits so it can possibly be an option for Y13s who are after UE (some standards could be swapped out for Level 3 standards but using the same content as Y12). It can also be done as a 2 year course as the assessments change and the content can be rotated, with the option of gaining UE credits over 2 years in this course.

 This subject is academic and requires students to write their analysis in essay format. While there is a large practical component to the course the literacy and reading and writing credits come from the external exams where students write coherently and perceptively to form an argument and express their ideas.
