Description

The media industry is changing quickly, and success depends on keeping up. If you’re preparing for a career in this exciting field, our MA Media and Communications degree course will help you stand out from the competition.

You’ll unpack the current and historic effects of media on society, and learn about how traditional and new media can be used to communicate different messages.
