Communication and Media Studies

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.

Digging deeper into subject interests can help you in a number of ways:

  • Confirm whether this is (or isn't) something you would be interested in enough to want to study it at university either as the focus of your degree or a minor/elective

  • Give you some inspiration to use when creating your questions and topics for IA's (coursework) and your Extended Essay

  • Provide you with content for your university application writing in the future, enabling you to reflect on the things you've been doing to explore your interests in a way that is academically relevant to the course or institution you are applying for.
