Communication & Media BA (Hons)

If you’re interested in a media career but are unsure of exactly what you’d like to do, this is the perfect course for you. It offers a fascinating overview of media and society, providing the practical skills required to work in this fast-paced environment, all underpinned by academic approaches from the humanities and social sciences.

You’ll examine the different ways people communicate, from face-to-face interaction to popular culture, as well as practical skills such as how to write in a variety of styles and formats, from scripts to online articles, short stories to digital media content. You’ll also learn lots of multimedia skills such as creating and editing videos that are vital in today’s media environment. What’s more, in your final year, you can choose units tailored towards your favoured career – for example advertising, public relations or journalism.

A four- or 30-week placement, depending on the length of degree you choose, will give you the practical experience you need to succeed in the communication and media sector. Your placement experience will help to shape your appreciation of the industry, put theory into practice, provide a variety of professional contacts, and enhance your CV – all essential for starting a career after graduation.
