Whatever the platform, media is at the centre of our daily experience and the ways in which we communicate with each other. Our dynamic and focused Media and Communication programme equips you to analyse the media and think critically about its social and political impacts, while giving you the chance to develop practical solutions for work-relevant projects.

Our state-of-the-art multimedia facilities, which include two HD TV studios and a computerised radio studio, and strong links with local employers, such as independent film producers, radio stations and newspapers, can help you build a combination of practical and transferable skills, creative thinking and applied academic knowledge so that you stand out in a competitive job market.

Programme structure

Year 1 introduces you to the academic study of media, developing core skills and understanding in the use of media across a variety of contexts. There is a particular focus upon the impact of digital technologies as new and old media converge.

In Year 2, you take core modules in media and communication theory and research methodologies, and can choose from a range of optional modules, including Media Campaign Management and Analysing Journalism. The Work Placement module allows you to prepare for your future in the world of work.

In the final year, you undertake an Extended Independent Study on a topic of your choice. A variety of optional modules include a blend of academic courses and those offering further practical experience relating to various aspects of media, audio, journalism and social media.

Career opportunities

Graduates may go on to work in the traditional industries within, or related to, the media such as journalism, media management, social media, public relations, fashion and advertising or in more innovative sectors of the cultural industries. The programme also fosters a key set of flexible skills that are relevant to a wide range of careers in communication work, HR business, education, management and public service.
