Media and Communication (New Media)

We are a pioneering institution, delivering some of the first UK media degrees. The BA (Hons) Media and Communication (New Media) is a specialist pathway meaning that alongside specialist new media modules, you’ll also get to study production and theory related to the areas of journalism, PR, television, radio, music industries, events and photography. With strong industry links and an emphasis on live projects which mirror the workflow of the industry, our course offers practical, professional preparation for a rewarding career or for further study. What's covered in the course? Helped by strong links with influential organisations, the course offers an industry-relevant blend of production, theory and professional studies. Specialist teaching takes place in our new media production studios and you will also benefit from access to world class radio, TV and photography facilities, as well as lecture theatres, seminar rooms, and social learning spaces. From the technical and visual design skills needed to create effective websites to engagement with emerging technologies, this pathway explores new approaches to media publishing and online promotion. Innovation-led, it places you at the forefront of new media production and prepares you to play an influential role in any media team. You are closely supported by exceptional facilities and by the supportive guidance and contemporary perspective of staff who are established media professionals. You will benefit from two (or more) industry placements to provide you with invaluable insight and contacts. Teaching is conducted across a range of environments, with specialist teaching focused on the new media production suites and other media work using facilities such as radio and TV studios, editing suites, a newsroom, lecture theatres, seminar rooms, and online. You will use blogs, create wikis and other interactive media to support your work and self-development.
