From social networking and popular culture to political movements and global events, we receive much of our knowledge of the world via media. This degree will build on your enthusiasm for the media and enable you to develop a wide range of production skills. It will also encourage you to critically examine how people share knowledge, values and beliefs through television, journalism, film, online media and beyond. You will be provided with opportunities to discover how the traditional media channels of radio, film and television continue to thrive and adapt, as well as examine social media and other communication formats such as podcasting and vlogging and the ever-widening reach of streaming platforms like Spotify and Netflix. You will be immersed in the various forms of media which have emerged, flourished and entered the popular global consciousness, while exploring the considerable impact they’ve had on culture and politics.
