Communication and Media Studies with Professional Development

Brunel is ranked 6th in London for Communication and Media studies (The Complete University Guide 2019). Our Communication and Media Studies degree is closely connected with sociology at Brunel. We aim to provide you with a mature, critical and sociologically informed understanding of the place of the media in today’s society, with a particular focus on new communication and information technologies. Despite being a central part to our existence we tend to take for granted, and to underestimate, the social and cultural impact of media communications in today’s world. As a student on this course you’ll learn, theoretically and practically, how communication and information media works and its importance to our society. You'll study practical media production in our specialist suites using professional-standard editing software, preparing you for the industry when you graduate. You'll learn through lectures and seminars and have one-to-one tutorials to discuss your dissertation in your final year. All students take part in practical modules. Video production is taught throughout the programme. In addition, you'll study social research methods. These include observation, interviewing and questionnaire design. On this flexible course you’ll be able to specialise in areas of particular interest to you. For example, you could specialise in the impact of the internet and other information and communications technologies or social media, media policy and regulation. Opt for our Communications and Media degree with a sandwich year and you could gain an industrial placement at a company such as Deluxe Entertainment and the Disney Channel. On this four year thin sandwich degree, you will typically spend two periods on work placements, which are likely to extend through the summer vacation.
