Overview

This programme affords the opportunity to study media theory alongside English. You will examine the central role of communication, cultural context and creative practice across a range of literary, linguistic and media texts and will study modules including film studies, popular culture, narrative analysis and genre analysis, which you can combine with specialist options from English and Media.

Your course will include industry-specific work placements, and a module in collaborative practice where you’ll work with others to deliver projects to live briefs. Throughout your studies, you will develop a range of transferable skills valued in the creative industries and beyond.

Your course will take place in the city centre campus with its prestigious location, modern teaching rooms – each with networked presentation equipment, and its brand new library and dedicated drama studio. Our School of Media offers cutting-edge facilities including state-of-the-art TV studios, radio studios, and post-production suites, as well as print and broadcast facilities and fully equipped photography studios.

Our academic staff are internationally recognised for excellence in research and regularly contribute to developments in their fields. Our English lecturers include published authors, poets, playwrights and scriptwriters, and our media lecturers include journalists and TV and radio producers, as well as media theorists.

Programme structure

The programme combines traditional teaching and learning approaches with innovative, multi-platform learning support, grounded in a student-partnership model which will encourage engagement beyond the scope of the course and ensure that students develop key transferable skills to enhance their employment.

The modules you study will involve critical analysis, investigative skills and imaginative thinking.

In your first year, you will focus on developing core knowledge, including theory and practice-based elements, across English studies. In the second half of your first year, you will be able to specialise further in your chosen area of study, and expand that in your second and third-year modules.

Career opportunities

Our alumni have found employment in arts administration, teaching, lecturing, law, media and marketing, management, research and writing, politics and public relations, social work and social administration and librarianship, information services and many other areas.
