Overview

If you enjoy following and responding to the important issues of the day or wish to pursue a media-based career, this course engages with contemporary developments and debate in media, communication and culture.

We aim for you to be able to question, critique and make your voice stand out from the crowd on topical debates around feminism, identity in a digital world, global and transnational media events, international media industries, distribution networks, memes and viral campaigns, among others.

We aim for our teaching to be underpinned by meaningful, research-based and real-life projects, collaborating with students from across the world.

Career opportunities

Our aim is to produce graduates who are digitally agile, professional, highly skilled communicators, ready to face the challenges of a global and complex mediated world and apply their knowledge in meaningful ways.

We provide a range of exciting opportunities to produce industry-related work and self-directed portfolios that are geared towards creating graduates who could work either in the UK or abroad. Past projects have included ‘JuneParis’, ‘Checkpoint/Counterpoint’ and ‘Rescheduled’, which have presented research through photographic and digital arts, with data produced in Berlin, Amsterdam and Paris. Students have hosted their own ‘Pop-Up Museum of Everyday Objects’ and produced their own collaborative post-digital publications. Our students are also a core part of the East Winds Film Festival.

We focus on developing your creative capacity, enhancing your skills in creating, making and producing and giving you the confidence to respond to the media as it happens with meaningful and academically informed outputs (eg. digital profiles, exhibitions, artefacts such as film and photography). With these skills, you will be well placed to take up roles in a range of creative sectors, ranging from advocacy and other forms of applied communications, academic research and scholarship, start-ups, arts, and particular industries within media sectors (e.g. film, journalism, cultural criticism, television, journalism, digital publishing).
