Media Studies engages critically and practically with the nature of media, a vital skill in an era of fake news, selfies and viral videos, and where media industries are constantly expanding.

You will study the foundations of media design and production and interactive storytelling, how to research and analyse media cultures, genres and industries, and the role of media in society and politics.

Students engage in independent and group projects to develop their media practice and have a flexible range of optional modules to expand their critical understanding.

Media Studies can be combined with Computer Science to develop a broad expertise in Media Technologies.

Why choose this degree?

  • To gain practical experience through hands-on instruction in creative media practice.
  • To learn about the impact of a range of media forms in society, culture and politics.
  • To broaden your educational experience by studying Media Studies along with Arts subjects (such as languages, business, social sciences, computer science).
