Temario

This degree has been designed to combine media theory, knowledge of specific industry practices and hands on, practical skills.

Your first year will focus on helping you to develop your skills in two key areas: media analysis and media production. You will explore a range of texts drawn from a variety of media within popular culture and you will be encouraged to ask critical questions about the meaning and implications of these texts, and the role of the media industries that produce them. These insights will then form the foundation of your own media production projects as you learn practical skills in areas like camera work, radio or news production, digital media or campaigning.

In your second year you will explore the issues and debates that surround new and social media, as well as choose from a range of exciting optional modules such as 'Visual Cultures', 'Global Journalism' or a work placement preparation module. A crucial aspect of this year is the opportunity to build on your practical skills by undertaking advanced training in one specialist area of media production, as well as undertaking comprehensive training in research techniques to prepare you for your independent project in the third year.

You will be able to choose from an even wider range of optional modules in your third year that will, for example, test your skills in analysis, communication and creative writing or your capacity to lead, develop and manage social and political campaigns. All students study 'Transgressive Culture' in the final year, a module that requires you to make critical judgements about controversial media and the systems that regulate it. This final year is where we encourage you to shine by developing and completing your own independent project, which will form the foundation on your industry portfolio and/or further academic study.
