Today, digital platforms and tools tend to complicate traditional boundaries between production and consumption, amateur and professional, artists, audiences and fans. This transformation is central to how skill development is supported within our degree.
Whether it is looking at viral videos or at the relationship between social media and activist campaigns, optional modules on your degree will help you to experiment with media practice while also studying its social and cultural role. In every year of your degree, we will ensure that you are registered on at least one module that has an assessment with some practical component. These types of assessments can both open up new insights into media cultures you are already a part of, as well as building important skills that are increasingly relevant for even non-media organisations.
