Course content

Explore the role of media in shaping and transforming society in the new global order. Study media of all kinds – news, film, and social media – and at all aspects of its operation: economics, law, politics, and culture. This highly interdisciplinary programme provides students with the opportunity to study contemporary media from a variety of perspectives.

This distinctive approach is best illustrated by the core module, Media and Society, which brings together key aspects of modern media and approaches them from the perspective of politics, economics, law and international development. Through your choice of optional modules (including practical media options) and your dissertation, you will tailor the degree to your interests, focusing on those aspects of media and society that you feel are most important.
