Media and Communication

The programme uses critical academic perspectives to study media and communication processes, to enable you to develop practical solutions for work-relevant projects. If you choose Media and Communication (rather than one of the industry-related media and communication pathways), you have the broadest possible choice of optional modules. Year 1 is foundational and introduces the academic study of media, developing core skills and understanding in the use of media across a variety of contexts. There is a particular focus upon the impact of digital technologies as new and old media converge. In Year 2, you take core modules in media and communication theory and research methodologies, and can choose from a range of optional modules. The Work Placement module gives you the chance to think carefully about your graduate exit strategy and what you need to do to achieve the career you want. In the final year, you undertake an Extended Independent Study which allows you to focus upon a topic of your choice. You further tailor your learning by choosing from a variety of optional modules. Some are conventional academic modules, giving you the chance to study specialist areas in-depth, and some modules offer further practical experience relating to various aspects of media, audio, journalism and social media.
