At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. Media and Film Studies are the study of communication forms that have become central to every aspect of our lives. Media and Film Studies are the study of communication forms that have become central to every aspect of our lives. You will study a range of cultural texts such as film, television, photography, advertisements, magazines, digital media and news production. As part of the programme, you will investigate the relationship between historical and cultural movements and media and film production, exploring the ways in which these forms are products of their time but in turn affect society. You will get the opportunity to produce cultural artefacts of your own through our series of practical modules ranging from photography to producing video and magazines online. We also provide opportunities to take work placements through our links to the creative and media industries. Media and film students work in a designated 24-hour access building with laboratory space, studios, kit, recreational space and a screening room. Keele enjoys high rates of graduate employment, where in 2016, were recognised nationally as 1st for employability in the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey. By the time you graduate, you will be ready to take up an active and creative role in today’s media-rich world. You will develop skills in communicating ideas to different audiences, analysis, and critical thinking. Our recent graduates have found employment in a range of careers such as television production, the film industry, journalism, publishing, web design, teaching and acting as well as postgraduate study.
