Overview

By studying Journalism and Media & Culture in combination, you will have opportunities to explore journalism as it is practised in today’s world alongside gaining broader, contextual understanding of the media and contemporary culture.

Both subject areas enable you to benefit from your lecturers’ cutting edge research and industry practice in aspects of journalism, media and culture – from ‘green’ computer games and popular music to perceptions of women newsreaders and online, citizen journalism. If you are interested in journalism as part of our wider contemporary culture of communication, and in the ways that media communication at once reflect and shape today’s world, then Journalism and Media & Culture, with their mix of practical, hands-on learning and academic study, may be well be an ideal programme for you.

Career opportunities

The Journalism aspect of this course will provide you with practical skills to work as a journalist or researcher, or in related communications jobs such as those in public relations. You will be well placed to progress to postgraduate study in journalism or in a wide range of other areas, and in a wide range of careers to which communication skills are central, including marketing and public relations, publishing, media and journalism, business and industry, charities and public administration.

Students have found employment in the following areas: radio presenting, both local and national, media research, journalism, event organising, media planning, television, theatre, marketing, public relations, campaigns, teaching and further study.

Furthermore, in a ‘media society’, where an understanding of how to communicate is all-important, graduates of this course now work in a wide range of other industries, and are involved in designing websites, writing publicity and press material, and running media training.

With employment sectors including marketing, public relations, event management, teaching, business, and the public sector, it is perhaps unsurprising that Media Studies is now identified as one of the top ten degree subjects for producing employable graduates.
