For brands to find, and reach, their audiences, they have to find their place in the digital landscape — but not just anyone can conquer social media algorithms or create engaging, must-click content. Rapidly evolving technology has led to marketing becoming more immersive, interactive, and inescapable than ever, and the rules and opportunities change as fast as the platforms.
From entertainment, to education, to socialising with friends, we live more of our lives than ever online. With so much of our time now spent on digital platforms like social media and streaming sites, the most successful brands know that’s where they need to be, too. For small start-ups, digital marketing provides an opportunity to be seen and heard that in the past would only be available to established companies. For big brands, it’s about keeping up and standing out in a crowded market. And for you? An in-depth understanding of digital marketing can unlock exciting opportunities with all kinds of different brands, products and services — and our BA (Hons) Digital Marketing will give you exactly that.
Over three years of this digital marketing degree, you’ll gain a richly detailed understanding of digital marketing fundamentals and specialisms, exploring topics ranging from advertising and digital storytelling to data analytics and customer behaviour. We’ve balanced theoretical modules with practical experience, challenging you to put everything you learn into practice by creating content and mapping out digital strategies, before culminating in an in-depth final project.
And you’ll spend as much time at workshops and events with digital marketing professionals as you will at lectures and seminars, giving you an opportunity to learn from the specialists and see how everything is applied to the creative industry. Whatever your goals, by the end of the course, you’ll be a master of online content — someone who knows how to reach and influence people through multiple digital platforms.
