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.

Photography:

Develop advanced photography skills, and gain a wide-ranging understanding of contemporary photographic culture, on our inspiring BA Photography degree course.

You’ll be on the doorstep of London’s vibrant creative scene, with some of the world’s leading magazines, agencies, studios and galleries within easy reach.

While developing your photography and technical skills, you’ll become adept at using 35mm film cameras, film processing equipment, DSLR cameras, medium and large format cameras, and studio and location lighting.

You'll learn to use all the relevant software packages, including Photoshop and Capture One, as well as developing digital darkroom skills and practical skills, such as project management, presentation and problem solving.

Career options

Recent graduates have gone on to work successfully as commercial photographers, fine art photographers, fashion photographers, marketing agents, photojournalists, picture editors, PR agents, studio managers, retouchers, retouching bureau managers and tutors.
