Media, Communications and Culture form a central part of our contemporary living experience: from the way we access the news to the way meaning is produced in cultural forms such as television, film, literature and music. We rely on media technology to sustain our everyday social relationships as well as to engage in the worlds of business, politics, and international affairs. Communications media have become key motors of social and cultural change. Students will study a range of cultural forms such as films, novels, plays, art, photography, advertisements, magazines and news production. They will investigate the way in which historical and cultural movements developed and continue to influence media production in the present. Students will also get the opportunity to produce cultural artefacts of their own through our series of practical modules that range from the art of photography and news production through to producing video and magazines. We can provide opportunities to enter work placements through our links to the creative and media industries. The central objective of Sociology is to link private problems to public concerns in order to help us to better understand our lives and respond constructively to problems that might seem otherwise impossible to resolve. But Sociology is not just about contemporary life. Even though it seems that our own experience of social change is the most turbulent in human history, reflection on the massive upheavals of the last 200 years can show how current changes relate to a much longer story of social evolution. By tracing the history of social change, it is possible to see how ideas, such as individualism, citizenship and class, began to emerge. In this context, Sociology is an essential form of knowledge for future generations because it offers us the opportunity to think about aspects of our social lives that we would otherwise take for granted.
