Course summary

Media and communication has the power to change the way we think and act. As daily smartphone use hits 93% of the world’s population (Deloitte 2018), media and communication industries are reaching and influencing a bigger, more connected audience than ever before.

We offer research-led media and communication teaching on the platforms you are passionate about. This is the perfect degree choice if you want to bring about positive changes within the media and communication industry and its role within a global society. Glasgow Caledonian University is highly regarded for the quality of teaching, research and facilities it provides.

Assessment and Teaching Methods

During your degree, you will be set a number of essays and other research assignments as well as being involved in writing blogs and working with social media. You will be expected to work in studios, to industry commissions and to live client briefs. Team-based assignments help develop a broader set of skills and professional behaviour. You will start to identify areas of strength and areas for personal development and professional resilience. We use varied assessment methods as this is most reflective of the competitive industries you will work in. We value your ability to be creative, independent, to show leadership and to work as part of a team.

You will learn from, and work with, experienced academics. You will be taught in lecture settings and in smaller seminars, labs and workshops. Industry guests are invited to give lectures and share the latest industry knowledge and tips for success.

Study Abroad

Spending part of your degree immersed in another culture can give you a unique perspective. We offer a study abroad period to BA Media and Communications students. Previous students have chosen locations all over the world including the US, Canada, Australia, Denmark and France.
