Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

This course will enhance your theoretical knowledge and will provide an opportunity to put theory into practice. Your first semester critically engages with key theories and the second focuses on developing your analytical, investigative and practical skills. During the final part of your course, you will complete a major independent project.

Your modules offer perspectives on a broad range of topics in relation to the study of media and culture, such as the effect of globalisation on media consumption, the impact new media platforms have had upon fandom, and how cultural identities are marginalised through mediatized images.

Work will be evaluated via a range of innovative assessment methods, including pitching your work to industry experts. You will learn collaboratively through seminars, guest lectures and workshops, with a wealth of opportunities to give your learning real-world context. Our academic staff's professional experience will ensure your expertise meets the expectations of potential employers.

We host regular guest lectures from visiting practitioners and researchers providing opportunities to learn from talented and creative minds. Visiting professionals have included newspaper editors, digital marketing executives and radio producers.

You will join a vibrant academic community that works in collaboration with people from a range of disciplines, giving you access to expertise from a variety of subject areas. You will be taught by academic staff whose research is highly regarded around the world, with excellent contacts across a host of regional and national organisations, including newspapers and magazines, sports organisations, social media marketing agencies and radio stations.

A rich variety of volunteering opportunities will be open to you, including the chance to work at broadcast media organisations, with sports journalists, or at radio stations. You will have the chance to contribute to and attend an interdisciplinary conference event that will encourage networking and help provide a platform to showcase your work and ideas.

Studying in the heart of Leeds, you will be close to a wealth of nationally significant cultural sites within the city and across the north, including Media City in Manchester and the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford.

TEACHING & LEARNING

Independent study is a crucial part of learning at university and you will be required to undertake many hours of self-directed research and reading, and preparation and writing of assessments. Your course is delivered through a number of modules, which will help you to plan your time and establish a study routine. Outside of your lectures, workshops and tutorials, a range of support is available to assist with your independent study. Our subject-specific librarians will be on hand to direct you to the specialist learning and study-skill resources. You’ll also be assigned an academic advisor to give you tailored feedback and support.

Our silver status in the latest Teaching Excellence Framework, reflects our commitment to deliver high-quality teaching, learning and outcomes for our students.
