Course summary

Through your studies you will develop an understanding of the historical and cultural bases of the study of the media and cultural industries and their roles in modern society.You will be instructed in the ways in which participatory access to the central sites of public culture and communication is distributed along axes of social division such as disability, class, ethnicity, gender, nationality and sexuality.Critical and analytical thinking skills are developed in a variety of areas including the study of popular cultures. The course engages critically with major thinkers, debates and intellectual paradigms within the field and puts them to productive use.You will be able to follow a clear culture and communication path throughout the three years of study which will culminate in a cultural studies-based dissertation.While Media and Communications in particular is a product of our extensive and growing communications environment, the course also benefits from our experience teaching and researching both journalism and media studies from national and international perspectives.While this course is both challenging and academic in nature, it does NOT provide vocational journalism training.Distinctive featuresStudy in the Guardian's top rated School for Journalism and Public Relations (2016 and 2017)Media modules are as diverse as Managing Media Communications, War Politics and Propaganda and Communicating CausesAccess to Erasmus and Study Abroad schemesCareers weeks and workshops to ensure your readiness for the ‘world of work’Year one seminars may be taken through the medium of Welsh and one third-year module is offered exclusively through the medium of Welsh
