Course summary

The BA Media offers a unique blend of analytical, creative and entrepreneurial experience of the media arts in the twenty-first century. It draws on a range of disciplinary expertise across three faculties at UCL: in media histories, media sociology and film studies (Arts & Humanities); Digital Anthropology (Social & Historical Sciences), game studies, digital arts, media semiotics, and education (Institute of Education). It provides a broad understanding of the exhilarating possibilities of the digital era: how the media is made, how it is experienced, how it functions in society, where it came from and what its future might be.The course situates the study of the media in a unique set of contexts, drawing on UCL’s networks and partnerships in London and beyond: the creative industries, centres of community enterprise and learning, and museums, galleries and libraries. Experience of these will be offered as placements leading to an assessed project in Year 2.Based initially at Bloomsbury, it will move in 2023 to UCL’s new East Bank campus, UCL East, where it will join a suite of new teaching and research activities at the cutting edge of technological and cultural work.The course equips you to understand, enjoy and create your own forms of media, for a wide range of future purposes: as creative and critical citizens; as potential employees and creators of the media industries of the future; as media artists and community activists.It offers a programme of options introducing you to a broad experience of theory and practice, eventually leading towards a preference for researching the media, culminating in a final dissertation project for the third year degree conference; or making the media, culminating in a studio-based production project for the third year degree show.
