Course summary

What happens to the information we share on social media? How do apps, platforms and devices change our social world? You choose whether to take a broad range of modules or follow a themed route in either education, journalism or marketing. Whichever path you take, the third year includes a digital media work placement which could be in industry or with the digital media section of another organisation such as a museum, a charity or a local authority. The course draws on expertise in this area from across the Faculty of Social Sciences, including the Department of Sociological Studies. It explores the impact of digital media on every aspect of our lives. You will learn how to use digital methods in research, and how to create products such as websites and animations that focus on users’ needs. Our graduates are skilled researchers and problem solvers. Their highly developed social and cultural awareness is a valuable asset in any sector. They work for local government, in marketing, the civil service, charity organisations and the police service. They also go into teaching and of course social work.
