BA (Hons) Applied Media will encourage you to utilise a range of different media experiences to develop your own practice and portfolio. The philosophy of the programme is underpinned by the concept of ‘360 Degree Media’ – this contemporary approach ensures that you are fully equipped for the 21st century media industry upon graduation. Due to the merging of media practices and great technological changes within the industry, the course aims to bring together all methods of media in relation to social, cultural, industrial, commercial and promotional environments. The structure of the course helps you to balance an understanding of specialist knowledge and a wider awareness across media industries. Many guest speaker visits will take place throughout the year, allowing you to discuss ideas surrounding relevant media industries with professionals who know the business. You will also have the opportunity to work with local organisations such as the Cornwall Museum Group or the National Trust to produce usable media products. Graduates from the course have subsequently become freelancers and others have set up their own businesses. Previous students have set up a sound engineering studio, a magazine design company, a video production company and a wedding photography business while others are producing work for several print and web publications around Cornwall. Other career options could include social media management, marketing, magazine design, print and web design and education.
