Learn a wide array of the skills you’ll need for a rewarding career in the media, on a well-established media degree course. As you work through your projects you will mirror the workflow of the media industry, gaining the practical, research and industry-standard professional skills you need to succeed. Our BA (Hons) Media and Communication course allows you to develop and experiment with media production skills across television, radio, web design, photography, public relations and music industries, and to experiment with how these forms of media production can combine to create new possibilities. We’ll also teach you theoretical perspectives to develop your understanding of the media’s role in society and to help you to push for innovation in your own production practice. Interactive teaching and learning is important to us, as it fosters an active and engaged community of thinking media workers. We encourage you to work on themes which matter to you for class work, projects and assignments. Underpinning all of this is a commitment to your professional development to help you break into the competitive media industry when you graduate. Helped by strong links with many influential media organisations, the blend of production, theory and professional studies will prepare you for the world of work. Foundation Year The foundation year is designed to give you the opportunity to develop your academic and interpersonal skills while developing your subject knowledge further to support you to success on your academic path. By studying a foundation year, your first year will be spent learning a wide range of broad subject areas which then open up opportunities for you to specialise further in your next year – which would be the first year of a full degree programme.
