Course summary

**About This Course**The world is becoming increasingly ‘mediated’. It’s impossible to understand modern life without understanding the media that reflects and shapes it. By studying the theory, art and business of media you’ll discover how media changes our world. And how you might create world-changing media of your own. This degree programme offers a great deal of choice in what you study. In your core modules you’ll explore media power, the history of social and political thought. You’ll also develop social research skills and learn how to analyse TV. As you progress you’ll build on that core foundation of skills and knowledge with optional modules. You’ll choose from topics such as gender and power, or digital media and society, to animation, journalism, American music, promotional culture, public opinion, digital politics, magazines, Japanese film, and much more besides. You could even choose to study a foreign language as well as apply to spend a semester studying abroad. **Overview**In this degree you’ll work with leading scholars and creative practitioners to explore a global range of media industries and texts. You’ll master the current debates in the discipline, whilst developing the skills to produce your own media content.You’ll explore histories and theories of media, covering a diverse range of audio-visual, print and digital communications, and examining their social and aesthetic significance.Meanwhile in your creative practice work you’ll have the opportunity to gain skills in filmmaking, magazine publishing, radio and podcast production, creating promotional materials and digital media production.
