English and Media Studies

Study English and Media Studies at Ulster University in the United Kingdom. Built around a core of significant authors writing in English from Elizabethan times to the end of the Twentieth Century, from Shakespeare to Seamus Heaney, this programme also provides the opportunity for you to follow your own interests through a wide range of optional modules. Two thirds of the course is made up these: you can, for example, follow strands on creative and professional writing, women’s writing and gender studies, and American literature; or select from modules on historical fiction, contemporary fiction, modern drama, love poetry, the Victorian novel, or Beat culture, to name just a few. In your final year, you will – guided by a member of the teaching team – write a dissertation on a topic of your own choice. This combination of one-third compulsory historical core and two-thirds specialist optional modules will allow you to develop your own areas of expertise whilst still attaining a solid grounding in the history of English literature. The mass media have an extraordinary influence on our daily lives and the way we view each other and the world around us. Examination and understanding of the ways in which the press, broadcasting, cinema and new media work is essential for the modern global citizen. Taking Media as a minor will allow you to develop a critically-informed knowledge of the multi-faceted role that the media play in social, cultural and political life. It thereby addresses the vital need for a broad humanities education that thoroughly examines the modern media of public communication from a range of perspectives. You will have a chance to study modules from a range of subject areas including photography, film, television, journalism and new media. As such, a minor in media will produce media-literate citizens, as well as graduates with a range of intellectual and transferable skills appropriate to the demands of life and work in contemporary society.
