**Course Start Date: 17th September 2018** BA (Hons) Media Studies offers students the opportunity to examine the transformative role of 21st Century media in today’s digital society, and to develop advanced critical and creative skills relevant to this new world. Media Studies is a young discipline, very open to speculation, experimentation and creativity. These values are important in our increasingly mediatized lives. 21st Century media are inseparable from all of the major contexts and concerns of our time. They are globally entangled in complex ways with economic, social, cultural, psychological, technical and environmental realms. It is essential for us to build on past achievements in this field of study but also to be able to think critically in new ways about the changing world and our part in it. This programme teaches students how to think critically in new ways about the changing world and our part in it. The Lincoln School of Film and Media offers a creative community of experienced staff, ambitious students and inspiring visiting speakers. We promote a collaborative, research-engaged ethos, reflecting a diversity of interests.
