BA (Hons) Contemporary Media Cultures develops critical thinking and practice through an in-depth study of the role that media, culture and creative processes play in shaping today’s world. The course draws on a range of new academic perspectives and combines them with the making of media, such as film, photography, journalistic writing and web-based content. This course is taught at London College of Communication, at Elephant & Castle, part of University of the Arts London. **What can you expect?** • You will learn about media and cultural theory in an art and design university that places an emphasis on creativity, innovation, exploration, discovery and collaboration. • You will also be guided through a series of case study units that will help you understand the links between the academic concepts and discussions explored in the degree, and how these ideas can be applied using a range of media. Practical elements of the course are designed specifically to help you develop your critical thinking – by putting your ideas into practice. You don’t just learn what to do and how to do it, you also learn why you’re doing it. • BA (Hons) Contemporary Media Cultures will prepare you for a successful career in whatever area of the media you choose to go into, from photography to marketing, journalism to filmmaking, curation to web design. **About London College of Communication (LCC)** The LCC experience is all about learning by doing.
