From political campaigns and international affairs to popular culture and social networking, communication and the media are at the centre of everyday life. We cannot fully understand modern societies without understanding media and communication.

You’ll critically examine how people share knowledge, values and beliefs through television, journalism, film, online media and beyond. Our degrees emphasise choice and opportunity, allowing you to tailor your degree to your own strengths and interests.

With teaching and research strengths across a wide range of media and communication subjects – from popular culture to political communication, journalism studies to digital media – we offer degrees that emphasise choice, opportunity and the development of analytical and creative skills.
