The Media and Marketing BA (Hons) combines London Metropolitan University’s world-leading expertise in the media and media industries with this career-focused study of marketing and advertising. The media is ingrained in modern life with television, radio, print media, cinema and the internet as channels for information, education, politics art and entertainment. The degree explores how the media shapes the way we live and its influence on contemporary marketing and corporate communications.
You’ll learn about the principles of marketing including branding, product management, pricing strategies and advertising, and gain hands-on practice-based learning with our first-class media resources including video and television production, as well as classroom-based grounding in the media industries and corporate environments.
You’ll learn how to operate a camera, budget a marketing campaign and manage a creative team. Optional modules enable you to specialise in specific parts of the media or commercial industry, and your final project will enable you to demonstrate your skills and expertise to employers.
The course is also supported by trips and visits, guest lectures and various other activities.
You’ll be assessed through a combination of different kinds of assessments, including coursework, reports, practice based work such as filming projects or poster presentation, and essays. There are a limited number of formal exams on the degree.
