About Communication & Media at Bournemouth University

Communication and media affects everything, from how we present our identity on social media through to the most significant global challenges facing society such as 'fake news', political division, and even tackling climate change. Communication and media is so important to organisations of all types, in all sectors, who are increasingly valuing the need for adaptable, interdisciplinary experts to manage their communication strategies internally and externally. This multi-purpose and exciting degree provides you with the expertise required to understand, analyse, and produce effective communication strategies to local and global audiences.

Our students:

  • Develop a critical understanding of the role the media plays in culture and society - ranging from the rise of the 'influencer' to the promotion of social issues
  • Master communication theories that can be applied across any media platform - including narrative structures and audience theories
  • Demonstrate an interdisciplinary practical skillset in multi-media design and production - including audio, video, scriptwriting and online publishing
  • Work at prestigious companies across a range of industries as placement students and graduates - including Nintendo, Adobe, Mercedes, and Walt Disney
  • Access industry-standard software and technical production facilities - including HD TV and Radio studios
  • You'll have the opportunity to study abroad for a semester at one of our partner universities in Canada, Czech Republic, Romania, Netherlands or Thailand
  • Publish news and features across our student platforms: Fresher Publishing, Nerve Media and The Rock independent newspaper.
