Course summary

Our degree in Media Studies has been designed to reflect the challenges and opportunities of rapidly changing digital media. This programme helps you build creative, technical and analytical skills reflecting the multiple demands of careers in media and creative industries and beyond as thinkers, makers and creators alike! Media and communication are the lifeblood of our society, culture and democracy. We get our news from television or Twitter in moments of crisis, we rely on the cinema or video streaming platforms for our entertainment, and we connect to others and construct an image of ourselves on social media. The programme examines a range of contemporary phenomena from celebrity to gaming culture, from user participation to social media. Why study Media Studies at Huddersfield? * You will be supported by Internationally recognised professors conducting cutting-edge research, leading media professionals and practitioners. * You will study in industry-standard facilities. * You will create your own news broadcasts, podcasts and radio shows, magazine and newspaper reports. * Opportunities to gain work experience on media industry placements including the optional year-long professional placement year. * The vast range of optional modules means you can tailor your degree to match your exact career ambitions. I believe that to both understand and thrive in our contemporary world you need to understand how the media operates: the media studies suite of degrees gives our students exactly that. The staff here are passionate about what we do, and we cover all aspects of advertising, media and popular culture. Modules are designed to challenge you while letting you explore things that you are passionate about. You can make your own films, set-up your own YouTube channels or podcasts, or critically explore the histories of fan cultures. ~ Ben Litherland, Course Leader for Media Studies.
