Media Studies

Aims

The aim of the Media Studies course is to enable students to become critical users and creators of media. It gives them a conceptual framework (group of theories) that can be used to analyse how meanings are created. Alongside this, students will also study how audiences respond to media texts – to explore how they are influenced by the media. This includes considering how the media encourages audiences to see themselves, and the world around them. It gives students the foundations on which to be able to create media products that are informed by a deeper understanding of how they are used by institutions and audiences. On the practical side, they will also develop the technical skills to be able to produce media texts that could be used within a range of areas in the media.
