Overview

During the twentieth century, media such as television, radio, cinema and newspapers became central to everyday life. The generation of new digital and mobile forms of communication – from multichannel interactive television and the iPod to Facebook and Twitter – is further transforming the cultural fabric of daily life in twenty-first century societies.
Programme includes a professional training year

Our Sociology, Culture and Media programme is an exciting and innovative degree which offers an indepth examination of the relationship between media, culture and society in the digital age.

This challenging programme allows you to combine the specialist examination of media and culture with an extensive grounding in sociology, including core theory and methods modules and options from different parts of the discipline.

Your studies will encapsulate an emphasis on contemporary developments such as digital, online and mobile media technologies, as well as an understanding of the evolution of established forms of communication, including broadcast and print media. You will also cover a range of high and popular forms of culture, from pop music and youth cultural styles to more elite forms of art. You will connect all this with a range of engaging topics and perspectives in the broader study of contemporary societies.
