This innovative and challenging programme investigates the role of media and culture in the social world. During the 20th century, traditional media such as television, radio, cinema and newspapers became central to everyday life. The new generation of digital and mobile forms of communication; from Facebook and Twitter to multi-channel interactive television and the iPod; is further transforming the cultural fabric of daily life in 21st-century societies. Your studies will explore digital, online and mobile media technologies, as well as the evolution of established forms of communication, including broadcast and print media. You will also consider a range of high and popular forms of culture, from pop music and youth cultural styles to more elite forms of art.
