The ways in which media is produced and consumed are rapidly changing; as industry seeks to manage the challenges of a globalised and knowledge-driven economy, we are increasingly engaging with media in all aspects of our lives. But media also concerns power and politics. This course will deepen your understanding of these complex dynamics and practices, preparing you for a career in this fast-changing industry.
You’ll explore the role of ideas, beliefs and values in media production and consumption. You’ll also learn how media products and content enable us to communicate creatively and effectively across global markets and cultural borders. By engaging with theory and research, you’ll consider how media can inform new kinds of professional practice and anticipate future developments.
Research, teamwork, and engagement with industry practices and debates form an integral part of the course. Engagement with industry professionals means you’ll have many opportunities to apply your knowledge to real-world examples and challenges. Our recent graduates have embarked on careers in public relations, marketing, the media and creative industries, communications and NGOs around the world.
