The Course

Summary

This degree develops a broad understanding of the media industries, together with practical abilities that help make you more employable. This course not only ensures you’re well-versed in theoretical and critical aspects of the subject area, but also have the opportunity to become fully trained in practicalities such as audio production, video editing, scriptwriting and more. Our emphasis on all-round training means you’ll graduate ready to follow in the footsteps of previous Stirling students who have forged successful careers in a range of media roles – from broadcasting and publishing, to advertising and public relations. There are also regular visits from members of our professional advisory board – who are experts able to bring crucial insights from the front-line of industry directly to you. Adding flexibility to your studies, you can combine Film and Media with one of 14 other courses, and tailor your degree to match your unique interests and ambitions.

Religion spans history, influences cultures and plays a major role in shaping today’s political landscape. It’s a subject that remains in the news constantly – in contexts ranging from discussions about marriage and gender identity to concerns about immigration and terrorist attacks. With all this in mind, it has never been more important to explore the many facets of religion, and understand the term’s meaning in a range of cultural contexts. Studying Religion at the University of Stirling gives you a chance to do all this. You’ll explore how the meaning of “Religion” differs around the world, and take a positive approach to considering how the term might be re-interpreted. Our teaching team is dedicated to carrying out cutting-edge research into religion, and they feed their findings back into new books and papers – as well as your coursework. Through your studies, you’ll develop a keen analytical mind, as well as the valuable ability to understand other people’s point-of-view and understanding of the world. Your employability is one of our highest priorities, and we want to make sure you have every possible advantage when you enter the job market. We also have a dedicated Faculty Employability and Skills Officer and a Careers and Employability Service that work in partnership with academic staff to ensure you get the best out of your University experience, and are given the right opportunities to make you ready for the world of work.
