Media Studies

Why study media?

From Facebook to film, Twitter to television and Youtube to youth cultures, our experiences of the world are increasingly dominated by media. The digital revolution and rapid growth in communications has made learning about the media industry more exciting than ever before. Media Studies is an exciting and challenging subject that encourages you to critically engage with a broad range of media products. But, there is also a strong emphasis on coursework, giving you the opportunity to build on practical skills in journalism, magazine design, photography, filming and digital/web-based media construction.

What makes a good media student?

A good media student should be inquisitive about the media products that surround them every day. They should have basic ICT skills and a good standard of English. They should be self-motivated and enthusiastic and have a real interest in filming and editing.
