Program Description

BA in Media Studies

Media Studies explores the media in national and international contexts and prepares you to enter the global employment market and to have a significant influence on it. This degree course offers you the opportunity to explore many different aspects of the media in a department that has a thriving and internationally recognized research culture. Moreover, the 2008 National Student Survey gave the programme excellent scores in student satisfaction especially for the quality of our teaching.

The course includes both theoretical and practical modules. The theoretical study addresses a range of media institutions, practices, users and audiences, and examines issues such as the construction of visual and textual language and the relationship between media and power.

On a practical level, you will develop skills in media research methods, writing, digital media, multimedia, publishing, radio and video production. Access to our excellent facilities ensures that the skills you take away from this course will be well aligned with the requirements of professional practice.
