Course summary

**Overview**Our everyday lives are mediated. Connecting with friends, travelling, shopping, and consuming entertainment are increasingly done through media technologies. By studying who owns these technologies, and what it is like to work in the media industries, you can better understand your place in this increasingly digitized world. On this course you will be equipped with cultural theories associated with people and their relationships to media and power. This course has flexibility, so that you also get the chance to use media creatively and for your own empowerment. This degree programme offers a great deal of choice in what you study. In the core modules you’ll explore media representation, broadcasting, the history of media, the media industries, and concepts to help you theorise media and culture, including the digital. You’ll also develop social research skills and learn how to analyse TV and online media. 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 promotional culture, animation, journalism, American music, public opinion, digital politics, magazines, Asian cinema, and much more besides. You could even choose to study a foreign language or apply to spend a semester studying abroad. **About This Course**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. You’ll also have the chance to gain real-world experience and build industry contacts with an internship. Past students have undertaken placements at local radio stations, television production companies, and the East Anglian Film Archive. In your first year you’ll become familiar with the key approaches and debates in media studies. In your second and third years you’ll take more specialist modules, focusing on creative media and industries, and adaptation. You’ll also have the opportunity to undertake creative practice work and take optional modules in topics such as media adaptation, popular music, the magazine industry, promotional culture, celebrity, or audiences. There are opportunities to engage with video, radio, sound-based media, television studio work, and digital media. By the end of the degree you will have the intellectual and practical skills to either enter a job in the media or go on to postgraduate study. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
