Course content

Our MA in Media encompasses a range of media and will enable you to understand and develop transferable skills important in an increasingly convergent industry.

The course addresses the opportunities and challenges facing the media sector, creative workforce and consumers. Our modules facilitate knowledge and understanding of features prevalent in all media sectors, and how they may respond in light of technological change and issues that have arisen as a result.

Media is taught at Warrington Campus, which is situated between the creative and cultural hubs of Manchester and Liverpool, and in close proximity to MediaCityUK.

Our Department of Media students have received numerous accolades over the years, including Royal Television Society Student Television awards and Student Radio Awards.

There are opportunities to work on 'live' briefs, and there are numerous Department of Media events open to all our Media students, including the annual field trip abroad, with students getting the chance to learn more about the creative industries in a different country.
