Course summary

Explore the complexity of contemporary media and culture with Kent’s Cultural Studies and Media with Journalism degree. Learn to question how information is interpreted and reacted to in our global society. Our combined subject degree offers an academically rigorous approach to the study of mediated cultural forms, practices and technologies and their vital social, political and economic implications alongside journalism skills. We examine a range of areas, from digital media and journalism, to the creative and cultural industries, to social identities and subcultures. In addition, you are introduced to some basic journalism skills like reporting and feature writing that position you well for a variety of careers in the media sector and beyond. At Kent, Cultural Studies and Media is part of the School of Social Policy, Sociology and Social Research so you benefit from a large choice of specialist modules on race, social change, criminal justice or disability and the arts. You begin with modules that offer an introduction to journalism skills and provide an overview of different cultural and sociological theories that address ‘culture’, ‘media’ and ‘society’ as part of a broader global and historical context. Your journalism skills are developed further in your second year. You also learn how to conduct and apply qualitative sociological research that explores mass media and advertising; digital media technologies; news and journalism; television and film, to name a few. In your final year of study, there is an option to take a dissertation module on a subject of your choice, which allows you to focus in detail on an area you are particularly passionate about. Approximately 70% of the modules you take are from the discipline of Cultural Studies and Media with the remaining 30% of modules from Journalism.The Cultural Studies modules are taught by leading academics and have the opportunity to choose modules from a wide range of subject areas. Our journalism modules are taught by working professionals in print, digital, radio and television journalism.Cultural Studies and Media BA is available as a single honours degree (UCAS code V902 at institution K24).
