Available degrees

Media and Communication BA (with optional year abroad)
Full-time, 3-4 years | UCAS code: P910
Today we have media in our pockets. And the way we’re absorbing and distributing information is always evolving. But what are the implications of this? How do we think about issues both critically and practically? This degree has the answers.

Media and Society BA (with optional year abroad)
Full-time, 3-4 years | UCAS code: PL33
Media and society have a complicated relationship. Why is this? It’s an increasingly important question, and one you’ll tackle through in-depth study of the key debates and theories that underpin it.

Film and Media Studies BA
Full-time, 3 years | UCAS code: P900
Few art forms can entertain, shock, inform or make us laugh the way film can. In this degree, you’ll explore the power of film and other modern media – drawing on critical approaches based in the humanities and social sciences.

Journalism BA
Full-time, 3 years | UCAS code: P500
In a world of social media and ‘fake news’, an understanding of journalism is more important than ever. This course will teach you core journalistic techniques and help you develop skills to deliver effective content across multiple platforms. We’ll also explore how the modern global news industry functions.
