Many media-relevant jobs advertised today didn’t exist in the same form twenty years ago – whether social media managers or digital content editors. So what exactly will media graduates need in five or ten years?
Our degree offers the flexibility to choose the set of experiences and knowledge that suits your interests and development. You will gain unique skills that span different media and incorporate deep understandings of how media matter and are used by communities today. This will place you at the cutting-edge in terms of your ability to analyse and adapt to changes in the media environment.
We emphasise the importance of understanding and being critical of how media operate together – whether in journalism, popular culture or advertising – in order to see opportunities for change and improvement. Students also get a chance to develop their creativity in a range of different ways – developing new ideas and understandings of how culture operates and experimenting with new skills.
This helps prepare our graduates for a range of jobs such as:
- Digital journalism and social media
- Creative sectors
- Founding online media companies
- Advertising and marketing
