  • Academic Title
    Media Culture and Communication, BA Hons
  • Course description
    Media culture is thought to be the dominant motif of our changing times. Therefore, it is essential that students be equipped with the relevant analytical and practical tools to be able to fully understand and participate in a world where the lines between art, politics and culture are becoming increasingly blurred.

    This programme has been designed to introduce students to critical engagement with media which involves studying the relationship between theory and practice. An appreciation of, and ability to deal with, complex intellectual frameworks of analysis, whether they be related to texts, institutions or broader political economies, is seen as central to informing media practice.

    Once established, this relationship will serve to enhance the student’s ability to participate in the programme’s key strands: critical theory, visual culture and new media technologies.
