Bringing together media practice and communications theory, this degree covers a broad spectrum of critical perspectives on the media, and introduces a range of contemporary media practices. You will study in one of the UK's and the world's top media and communications departments. You'll be taught by leading names in media, communications and cultural studies. We concentrate on high quality lectures and small group work, and all our teaching takes place on one purpose-built site. On practice modules you'll be taught by industry professionals engaged in TV, film, journalism, radio, photography, scriptwriting, short fiction, illustration, interactive media and animation. You'll have access to industry-standard practice facilities, including TV/film, radio and photography studios, digital video and audio editing suites, and animation software and hardware. Our close links to the media industry bring you into regular contact with media professionals. You will have the opportunity to apply for an internship in the media as part of the course. We regularly host debates and talks by international figures in media and cultural research and the media industry; recent guests have included Danny Boyle, Gurinder Chadha and Noel Clark. You'll be taught alongside students from all over the world and with diverse cultural experiences that enrich the department and the learning experience. You'll develop skills that you can use throughout your career whether in the media industries or elsewhere. Our recent graduates are now working as television producers, news readers, editors, journalists etc... Others have gone into a whole range of careers such as research, teaching and law.
The degree consists of 50% media theory and 50% media practice. We aim to provide an inspirational learning experience in which theory and practice influence and enrich each other in the production of original creative and intellectual work. Far more than just a media degree this programme incorporates philosophical perspectives on technology and human life as well as sociological approaches to media production. We look at issues of identity through critical race studies, queer theory and critiques of post-feminism. We investigate global screen cultures and also the role of news in democracy. All of this, together with critical, creative practice in production equips our students to be the thinking media practitioners of the future. Please note that due to staff research commitments not all of these modules may be available every year.
