Course summary

The programme focuses on advertising in the wider context of media and communication processes.

The first academic year is foundational and introduces the academic study of media, developing core skills and understanding in the use of media across a variety of contexts. There is a particular focus upon the impact of digital technologies as new and old media converge.

You study a topic of your choice in-depth for your Extended Independent Study, and tailor your learning by choosing from a variety of optional modules based upon staff expertise in research or industry practice.
