Are you interested in the power of words? Do you like analysing the way language is used in the media and in all kinds of different texts? Do you want to learn more about creating your own texts and media? English and Media is a vocational degree that gives you the opportunity to combine the study of English literature and creative writing with the theory and practice of multi-media production. Through this course, we will show you how great writers, from Shakespeare to contemporary slam poets, have used words to express themselves and to influence the world around them. At the same time, you’ll study how words, images, and technology are combined to such powerful effect in digital media. You'll develop practical skills in media production, using the latest media formatting equipment and software. You can specialise in a particular area of production, whether that’s radio and podcasts, digital effects or transmedia. You'll also have the opportunity to create your own literature and learn how to give and receive criticism in creative writing workshops. Putting your creative and practical skills into practice, you'll complete professional work placements. You'll gain invaluable professional experience and make contacts that could help you build your future career. Whether you want to work in the media, train to be a teacher, or work in a field where good communication skills are needed, English and Media has a lot to offer you. Professional placements Our students have completed their placements at a wide range of organisations – from film production companies and recording studios, to local newspapers and MPs' offices. If you're interested in teaching, you could also experience working in a primary or secondary school. Career opportunities Our graduates are working as online content editors, journalists, magazine editors, primary school teachers, research assistants, archivists, feature writers, radio and TV producers and publishing editors.
