    Pass rates are much higher in MS then Science and Maths. As explained.
    Actually someone posted statistics a while ago when we were having a similar debate showing that the numbers getting As in media studies was much lower than the numbers getting As in maths. Does that mean maths is 'mickey mouse'?

    Exactly. Does that make you stupid? No, it just means your skills lie in a different area.
    I agree, but science are maths are more academic subjects compared to ms and art, you cant argue against that, as they clearly are. In saying this though, it depends on what career you wish to go into. Maths and Science will be rendered completely useless to you if you want to be come an artist or something.

    Yep, another reason why this debate is futile. Maths and media studies are so different that it makes no sense to try and compare them.

    No because Maths has never been a mickey mouse course EVER. More academic people take it, but also please compare the numbers being entered into the subjects. Maths is significantly lower.

    you seem to live in a bubble where you think an MS degree is fine. wait until you get out into the real world when you are trying to land a SUCCESSFUL job and you will see that MS is not so sparkly.

    Surely if more people take media studies, that means there should be more As, not less?

    Maths, English, French, History etc are quite intensive. Media Studies isn't, and that is why it continues to be mocked in the media (oh how ironic) and by reputable unis.

    I'm sorry, do you do media studies? Unless you do, you can't possibly know how intensive, or otherwise, it is.

    Not at all, more people take it because they think its the "easier" option, but due to some years the amount of A's being extremely high, they may of made the course harder thus to decrease the pass rate. However, Maths has alway has been always will be hard therefore the passrate every year is about average.

    where the hell did that source say that? it just said 80% of them get a job, NOT successful.

    ""But it's often from people who should know better and this criticism belies the fact that 80% of those qualified in media studies get jobs in the media within two years. ""
