This is an American-style degree, four years in length. The Media Communications major offers a grounding in media history, theories and developments, helping you find and analyse media meaning and content. The programme also introduces you to writing and producing for various forms of media - essential skills for work in the communications and creative industries. In your foundation year you undertake a general education programme which provides a comprehensive foundation for your degree studies. From the first year of your degree, you choose a ‘major’ subject area whilst taking a range of ‘electives’ to tailor your degree to match your passions and interests. Every module in our liberal studies programme has been specifically designed for the degree, delivering you a broad-based education which engages you in critical and interdisciplinary thinking. Liberal arts graduates are well-prepared to make the most of opportunities in a fast-moving global economy. January start date - apply on our website. September start date - apply through UCAS.
