On the BA Media Studies, you’ll combine creative and practical storytelling with the development of your critical understanding of media, a vital skill since media industries are constantly expanding with new platforms emerging each year and new issues materialising like fake news.

  • You’ll get to research and analyse media cultures, genres and industries as well as the role of media in society and politics, and then you’ll apply this in your practice of media design and production and interactive storytelling.
  • You’ll develop your employability and professionalism through your exploration of media and cultural industries and working lives.
  • Media Studies can be combined with Computer Science to develop a broad expertise in Media Technologies.

  • 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).
