What will I learn?

From political campaigns to celebrity scandals and the ways we communicate with each other, media is at the centre of our daily experiences. This course will equip you with the skills and theory needed to analyse the media and think critically about its social and political impacts.You’ll study theory and research in communication and media alongside the broader economic, political and social context of the communication and media industries. While this course is theoretical rather than practical, you can explore aspects of media production through optional modules, enabling you to build skills in screenwriting, camera and editing techniques and new media practices.Taught by expert researchers, you can choose to focus on digital media, film studies, journalism and a range of other topics. You could even undertake a four-week work placement to gain hands-on experience in the communication and media industries.
