Digital technology now shapes every aspect of culture and society. This degree will make you stand out as a specialist in this field. It will set you up for a career in the digital, media or creative industries.

Ever wondered how social media influences our politics, or how AI can discriminate against different ethnicities? Are you fascinated by how apps have affected our lives?

We rely on digital technologies - to read the news, maintain our friendships, and manage our work. They affect what we do and how we behave.

This Digital Cultures and Media degree focuses on how digital technologies shape society. It explores how media influences culture and communication. You'll create and analyse contemporary media like mobile apps and data visualisations. You’ll learn creative applications of immersive technologies, and how to apply them in the real world.

You will graduate with the ability to combine critical thinking with the practical digital skills needed to reshape our digital lives.

Study abroad

Experience life in another country by choosing to study abroad as part of your degree. You’ll be encouraged to embrace fun and challenging experiences, make connections with new communities and graduate as a globally aware professional, ready for your future.

You can choose to spend up to a year studying at a partner institution overseas. If you choose to study abroad, it will extend your degree by a year.

Work placement

Get career ready with work placement and leave as a confident professional in your field. You can apply to spend 9 to 12 months working in any organisation in the world, and receive University support from our dedicated team to secure your dream placement. Work placements take place between stages 2 and 3.

You'll gain first-hand experience of working in the sector, putting your learning into practice and developing your professional expertise.

If you choose to take a work placement, it will extend your degree by a year, and your degree title will show you have achieved the placement year. A work placement is not available if you're spending a year studying abroad. Placements are subject to availability.
