This BA (Hons) course gives you an opportunity to look at how these industries contribute to our every day experiences, through the study of media institutions like television, film, advertising, publishing and journalism, as well as forms of communication (public relations, social marketing, fiction, documentary, video games, magazines and new media) and cultural trends and practices (youth culture, comedy, social media, consumerism, travel, tourism and fashion).
The Foundation Year is ideal if you have the interest and ability to study for a degree, but do not have the qualifications to enter directly onto the Media, Culture, Communication honours degree programme yet.
Once you pass the Foundation Year (level 3) you will progress directly onto the first year of the honours degree. If you are a full-time UK student, you will qualify for student financial support for the full duration of your course (subject to eligibility criteria).
The programme is designed with your future employability in mind, so you are encouraged to develop transferable skills such as research, communication, problem solving, teamwork and independent working. Although we focus on theoretical and critical study, we incorporate applied case studies and work-related learning into many aspects of the programme, including a period of work experience with a local or national organisation.
