About the course

Are you fascinated by our constantly changing contemporary media and culture? Do you want to develop yourself into an independent thinker capable of negotiating rapid shifts in the media and creative industries today? In this course, you will be challenged not only to think about media, but to also think through media by engaging directly with digital and traditional media forms.

The BA Media and Culture gives you important insight into a world where media permeates almost every aspect of our lives. You will explore core topics in media studies, such as social media, mobile technology, film, television and journalism. At the same time, you will have a chance to develop a working understanding of how media impacts fields such as arts, curating, design, education, literature, museums, performance, politics and activism.

This course is your opportunity to learn about cutting-edge academic perspectives, while also developing skills and knowledge in applied media practice. It will help you develop a broad and highly transferable understanding of media culture suited to our twenty-first-century context.
