Aberystwyth University Journalism

At Aberystwyth we consider who controls and owns our media, how media content is produced, and what kind of impact the media have on us as audiences. We will also introduce you to some of the key media and communication theorists and will consider how you can apply their thinking to your own study of media and communications. A wide range of study is open to you: media fandom, advertising, news analysis, website design, digital culture, children and the media, surveillance society, language and the media, media history and policy together with creative practice experience in multiplatform production and experimental media. Your three years of study will be dynamic, invigorating and stimulating.

  • You will be taught by staff who are expert in the field of Media and Communication, have excellent connections to the industry, contribute to national debates on the media, and are at the forefront of research in the field.
  • Students on this course will have a deeper understanding of sociology, psychology, cultural studies, history, philosophy, linguistics and marketing.
  • Students will be taught in virbant, modern and dynamic teaching facilities including a brand new PC lab designed to assimilate the digital media industry, digital production and editing suites.
  • Our industry links are embedded at the heart of the department with the BBC Wales, regional office and broadcast situated by the entrance.
  • Students can exploit full access to the National Sound and Screen Archive of Wales which is a stone’s through away from the Penglais campus.
