Communication and Media Studies

If you had your own blog, Twitter or Pinterest before most people even knew they existed, are fascinated by news, or why an image or video goes viral, or the process of getting developing for screen, then this is for you.

You will have to keep pace with the latest trends, tech and debates. Communication & Media Studies degrees prepare students for work in the media industry, analysing the way media reflects, represents and influences.
