Course Summary

The BA in Media and Communication is designed to provide you with an understanding of a wide range of contemporary issues related to the theory, development and practice of mass and interactive communication, both nationally and internationally. You will learn how news is produced and reported, and how media industries, politics, culture and society interact, as well as learning about a very wide range of media, from newspapers to Twitter, from Hollywood movies to reality TV. Today, the media is in your pocket, on your bedside table and in your classroom, unlike a few years ago when it was just in the living room. Media is an integral part of social and political revolutions and changes. From Pinterest to photo and location tagging on Facebook, from long-trusted newspapers read in print to films discussed on YouTube – the media are now so much part of our lives that we take them for granted. Recent graduates have gone on to work for companies such as American Express, Artavia Advertising, BBC, City Index, E.ON Energy, Gogglebox Entertainment, HMRC, Lloyds Bank, Sky Media, Transport for London, Web Liquid Digital Marketing. Others have gone on to further study in the following fields: Broadcast Journalism, Journalism, Marketing, Cinema and Television, and International Relations.
