Communications and Digital Culture (Including Year Abroad) - University of Essex

At Essex, we are a world leader in social science – two of our subjects rank within the global top 50 according to the QS World Rankings (2017). On this course, we investigate what connects people with each other, as well as what divides them. How does the media shape social and cultural life? What is media power and who wields it? How do the creative industries work? How have digital and internet cultures transformed personal and networked interactions? What is the relationship between the media, mass politics and governance? How are consumer cultures changing? You consider these kinds of pressing contemporary questions and are taught by expert staff in our Department of Sociology, one of the UK’s leading departments for social science and cultural analysis. We teach in interesting and innovative ways with an exciting choice of modules enabling you to study sociology and the media while developing research skills.Your third year spent abroad gives you the chance to gain more experience and become even more employable.
