The Film and Screen Media degree reflects how film and television studies have changed in recent years as a result of the impact of digital media and our interaction with it. By studying a range of topics you will gain an understanding of the most significant issues affecting the media today and its relationship with our culture and society. Sociology encourages examination of the institutions within which people organise and manage their lives, through investigation of a range of themes. Social institutions such as the family, education and religion are scrutinised for how they shape and construct identities. An appreciation of the historical origins of Sociology promotes exploration of the emergence of the globalised contemporary world and the interconnections of people on an international scale.
