Course summary

Overview

If you enjoy following and responding to the important issues of the day or wish to pursue a media-based career, this course engages with contemporary developments and debate in media, communication and culture.

On this course we will develop your abilities to question, critique and make your voice stand out from the crowd on topical debates around feminism, identity in a digital world, global and transnational media events, international media industries, distribution networks, memes and viral campaigns, among others.

Our course was one of the first in the postgraduate field of communication, culture and media in the UK. Our teaching is underpinned by meaningful, research-based and real-life projects, collaborating with our current network of international partners from countries including Finland, Australia, Japan and America (subject to availability).

Course information

"There are no new ideas. There are only new ways of making them felt.” So said the African American writer, poet and civil rights activist Audre Lorde.

On this course, we will explore the feelings and emotional responses created by contemporary media and culture; together we will discover new ways of making sense of and creatively interpreting our 21st century world.

Intercultural collaboration is placed at the heart of this programme to help us effectively shape new ways of understanding our complex mediated world. We encourage you to collaborate effectively, with the ability to work in transnational contexts, to acknowledge cross-cultural difference and to welcome its personal and group-level benefits.

Career prospects

Our aim is to produce graduates who are digitally agile, professional, highly skilled communicators, ready to face the challenges of a global and complex mediated world and apply their knowledge in meaningful ways.

We provide a range of exciting opportunities to produce industry-related work and self-directed portfolios that are geared towards creating graduates who could work either in the UK or abroad. Past projects have included ‘JuneParis’, ‘Checkpoint/Counterpoint’ and ‘Rescheduled’, which have presented research through photographic and digital arts, with data produced in Berlin, Amsterdam and Paris. Students have hosted their own ‘Pop-Up Museum of Everyday Objects’ and produced their own collaborative post-digital publications. Our students are also a core part of the East Winds Film Festival.
