Course summary

The pairing of English Literature and Media develops skills in critical thinking and analysis in response to a range of different types of texts. In the media-saturated society that surrounds us we encounter media products and practices in countless different ways. On this degree programme we believe it is extremely important to understand how literature, media and culture affect who we are, what we do and how we understand ourselves and the world around us.

Course overview

The Media course recieved a 100% satisfaction rate in the 2018 National Student Survey. The course combines critical and theoretical aspects with practical design and marketing elements as you progress. Studying Media at York St John University involves considering the way Media has shaped our culture and includes elements of Philosophy, Sociology and Politics. This broad approach allows you to decide on what really interests and choose your own path as to what you want to develop as your expertise. This includes being taught by professional designers as well as lecturers who will guide you in your studies. Of course we include opportunities to visit cultural hubs such as galleries, cinemas and other media centres and also you can also get involved with an international field trip.

We also have our own publication in the form of Neutral magazine, which is a showcase for our students' talents in terms of writing, design and marketing.

All our introductory Literature modules seek to equip students with an understanding of historical developments in the form of the written word. These modules provide you with a basic grounding in key texts, major historical moments, and important critical terms that will be applicable across the rest of your degree
