Course summary

Overview Here at Worcester, we are passionate about exploring, investigating and questioning the role of media and culture in defining, shaping and changing our world. We know that both media and culture has an impact on everything from the tiniest detail of our identities and everyday life up to historic global events and movements. We examine the processes that give media and culture its influence; we ask - where the power lies? who gets to be seen and how change is created? As a media and culture student, you will draw on your own rich experience of media and culture as well as being introduced to the new. Using up to date academic approaches and methods you will learn to assess, analyse and critique media and culture allowing you to respond to what’s there as well as creating and participating yourself. Modules and topics as diverse and significant as gender & sexualities; representation & diversity; identities & cultures; conflict and politics; social media & activism; green media & the environment; crime & deviance and music, film television and internet cultures.
