MEDIA is a popular course which enables you to design your perfect degree by offering a mixture of theoretical and practical modules that consider approaches to the media.

Philosophy at NTU aims to develop your powers of argument, critical thinking and conceptual analysis through the search for answers to ultimate questions.
