You will have the opportunity to gain contextual understanding of this highly popular field in a city globally renowned for its Media Creative Industries. In addition, you will have access to wide-ranging industry networks and events gaining first-hand knowledge and exposure to potential employment sectors.
London is at the centre of a revolution in media content creation, cultural innovation and new business models for media and creative industries. This programme is rooted in the dynamic development of London as a global media city and focuses on the transformation and growth of these industries in an international context.
Media and cultural industries are important sources of employment and economic growth globally. This programme charts the increasing prominence and understands the changes in these industries and how they are governed over time and in different countries.
Media content and cultural products are also important carriers of meaning about the world which we use to construct our social identities and allegiances. This programme examines the way in which individuals and organisations consume and use media and culture in everyday life to fashion identities and relationships.
Based in the former Olympic International Broadcast Centre, our neighbours include BT Sport broadcasting company, owners of Europe's largest Sport TV studios. Along with providing a strong theoretical foundation, these connections mean that the programme can also offer unique opportunities for students to gain industry exposure and insights into the practical aspects of the media industry.
