Summary

The internet, social networks and mobile media are transforming the way news, entertainment and communications are produced and consumed. This degree will give you a critical understanding of the technological, social, cultural and political implications of these changes, and the skills to engage with and shape them. Covering contemporary topics ranging from gamification to citizen journalism, you’ll learn about organisations’ communications strategies and management practices, with a focus on how ideas are developed and how audiences and users respond to them. Informed by world-class research and taught within a creative art school environment, the course will enable you to explore the latest debates through practice-based projects using social media, photography, video and blogging. You’ll learn from leading researchers and external practitioners, gaining industry insights through guest lectures, behind-the-scenes visits and field trips. With a strong emphasis on employability, the course will help you to develop your professional profile in preparation for a role in the creative and communications industries, while its academic rigour means it is also excellent preparation for doctoral research.
