  • Course description
    If you’re interested in a media career but are unsure of
    exactly what you’d like to do, this is the perfect course for you. It offers a
    fascinating overview of media and society, providing the practical skills
    required to work in this fast-paced environment, all underpinned by academic
    approaches from the humanities and social sciences. You’ll examine the different ways people communicate, from
    face-to-face interaction to popular culture, as well as practical skills such
    as how to write in a variety of styles and formats, from scripts to online
    articles, short stories to digital media content. You’ll also learn lots of
    multimedia skills such as creating and editing videos that are vital in today’s
    media environment. What’s more, in your final year, you can choose units
    tailored towards your favoured career – for example advertising, public
    relations or journalism. A four- or 30-week placement, depending on the length of
    degree you choose, will give you the practical experience you need to succeed
    in the communication and media sector. Your placement experience will help to
    shape your appreciation of the industry, put theory into practice, provide a
    variety of professional contacts, and enhance your CV – all essential for
    starting a career after graduation.
