Course summary

What makes Media & Film Studies BA (Hons) at Worcester Special? Here at Worcester we are passionate about media futures: exactly how have media and film industries and applications been affected by new and emerging technologies? How does culture affect peoples’ understanding and engagement with the media or film? What will the media or film industry look like in the next 5-10 years? You will investigate the very latest industry advances, questioning their function and impact, informed by our research-inspired lectures, seminars and workshops. You will explore representation and ideology through a variety of media forms and film genres, including streaming platforms, mixed reality, queer and horror. You will learn to articulate how and why these forms and genres affect their users and audiences through the analysis of case study examples which you can choose. Do you see yourself represented in the media or film industry? Media and film technologies have the potential to shape the world and you will develop an appreciation of the role you can play in that change. At Worcester we introduce you to a variety of well-established and emerging fields and industries, including social media politics and marketing, and immersive media applications so that you can begin to plan your future.
