This interdisciplinary degree gives you the opportunity to explore sociological and communications theories alongside media practice, and to develop a critical analysis of media, communications and culture from historical and contemporary viewpoints. You'll be taught by some of the leading names in media, communications, cultural studies and sociology – we write the books that are on your reading lists because they've actively shaped these disciplines. You'll have access to industry-standard practice facilities, including TV/film, radio and photography studios, digital video and audio editing suites, and animation software and hardware. You'll develop the practical and transferable skills that you can apply in the work place – our recent graduates are now working as news readers, editors, journalists, producers and photographers. We regularly host debates and talks by international figures in media and cultural research; recent guests have included Danny Boyle, Gurinder Chadha and Noel Clark. By studying in the department you'll be working alongside academics who are leaders in their fields.
