Media and Communications | Bachelor's degree | Media & Communications | On Campus | 3 years | Cardiff University | United Kingdom
Through your studies you will develop an understanding of the historical and cultural bases of the study of the media and cultural industries and their roles in modern society.
You will be instructed in the ways in which participatory access to the central sites of public culture and communication is distributed along axes of social division such as disability, class, ethnicity, gender, nationality and sexuality.
Critical and analytical thinking skills are developed in a variety of areas including the study of popular cultures. The course engages critically with major thinkers, debates and intellectual paradigms within the field and puts them to productive use.
You will be able to follow a clear culture and communication path throughout the three years of study which will culminate in a cultural studies-based dissertation.
While Media and Communications in particular is a product of our extensive and growing communications environment, the course also benefits from our experience teaching and researching both journalism and media studies from national and international perspectives.
While this course is both challenging and academic in nature, it does NOT provide vocational journalism training.
You will focus on media industries and forms other than journalism by including areas like film, television, social and digital platforms, popular music, and marketing and PR.
We frequently welcome guest speakers from industry and past students that have undertaken work placements at organisations including BBC Wales’s Drama department.
You will study in a new purpose-built School in the centre of Cardiff's all-new Central Square development.
The modules shown are an example of the typical curriculum and will be reviewed prior to the 2020/21 academic year. The final modules will be published by September.
