This wide-ranging course explores the media in national and international contexts, and will equip you with the skills you need for the global jobs market.
Our lecturers and tutors are experienced academics and industry professionals who specialise in different aspects of the media field – and we cover all the different aspects of media including the internet and digital media, video and film making, radio and sound production, print media and publishing. You’ll also study the issues surrounding technology, the economy, society, gender, popular culture and the global information age.
There’s a strong practical element. You’ll learn the production techniques behind various media and will be able to create your own work as part of your course – using the industry-standard production facilities at our Media and Journalism Centre in Peterborough city centre. The Centre has the latest software and editing equipment, as well as working television and radio studios. Our students and staff are currently using it to produce a film about Peterborough Cathedral for its 900th anniversary year – and this is just one of the group projects you can take part in.
With its mixture of theory and vocational training, the course ticks all the academic and career boxes. You’ll graduate with a strong set of employment skills, as well as a respected qualification that will show employers you’ve the intellect needed to communicate complex ideas and continually adapt to a fast-changing sector.
Whether you’re thinking of a career in broadcast, publishing, film, academic research or more general business, this is a good place to start.
Our students go on to careers in many branches of the media, including broadcast, print, production, radio, video and film.
We’re always developing placement opportunities with the industry and our students have worked with organisations including the BBC, Vivacity Peterborough, the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Ideal World Shopping Channel and i3MEDIA (among others). You can apply for a bursary to cover your work experience expenses with local employers.
