Media plays an important role in reflecting, influencing and even shaping modern life and can be world-changing. Our exciting degree spans the breadth of Media Studies, including: television and radio, film and video, digital media, journalism, public relations and media practice. Skills and techniques learnt during the study and production of audio-visual material lie at the core of many of the key areas in the creative industries. This course will equip you with a solid grounding in the technical and practical skills required to make you a sought-after professional in these fields. Our Media Studies (with Foundation Year) option is a four-year course with an integrated foundation year which leads to the same qualification as our three-year honours degree. It has been specifically designed for those wanting to undertake degree-level study but who may not meet the entry requirements or have traditional qualifications. The Foundation Year (Year 0) offers you the chance to expand and strengthen your confidence, skills and knowledge – ensuring that you are well-prepared and qualified to progress into Year 1 of the undergraduate degree. ‘Placement Year’ and 'International Experience Year’ options are available for this course. You will have the opportunity to fully consider these options when you have started your course at Bangor and can make an application for a transfer onto such a pathway at the appropriate time. You can find more information about these options on our website and if you have any questions, please get in touch.
For details of the modular structure, please see the course description on Bangor University's website.
