Course summary

Media, Culture and Identity:

Our Media, Culture and Identity BA is particularly relevant if you are looking to kick-start your career in the creative industries.

Exploring current debates about culture, and considering how the media can bring about social, cultural and political change, this degree gives you a deeper insight into how people engage with different media forms such as TV, radio, print, digital communication, advertising and social media.

You will consider the relationship between media and society, drawing on other disciplines such as sociology, political science and cultural studies, and be introduced to key approaches to analysing the media-society relationship, while engaging critically and creatively with media and identity.

The course covers key developments in the media, looks at how media texts are produced, distributed, regulated and consumed, and explores the ways in which the media can influence society.

Career options

You will be well placed to move into a career in the media, research, advertising, public relations, or NGO and charity work. You could go on to work for a think tank, government department, or an arts, culture or social change organisation.

Journalism:

The Roehampton programme is tailored to prepare you for the modern media industry. We offer hands-on, practical modules that focus on the skills employers want.

As you learn how to research, report and develop a story, you will also be trained in how to present it in the most compelling way, using industry-standard digital tools. You will have the opportunity to focus on the subjects and formats that interest you most and to develop your own multimedia projects, such as podcasts or investigative reports. You will also learn how to target your work for different audiences.

Career options

You could go on to work as a news reporter, writer, editor or producer, or in another role on a local, national or international publication, radio, television or online media.
