Media BA (Hons)

Media BA (Hons)

Media offers an exciting and intellectually rigorous degree programme that helps us interrogate how media and culture affect who we are, and how we understand ourselves and the world around us. On this degree you learn not only how to analyse and debate the media, but also how to engage with it in a variety of ways – from writing in a number of styles for a range of audiences and platforms, producing digital material and creating images and film.

You can study our Media programme as a Specialist degree and as part of a Joint Honours degree
