What will I learn?

The BA Media & Communications combines the cultivation of critical thinking, research and writing with real-life media research and production skills.

The overarching aim of the programme is for students to gain both theoretical and practical grasp of media and communications as an area of intellectual, creative and professional practice not limited to one particular industry.
