Why study Media Studies
Media Studies engages with modes and technologies of communication, expression, social interaction, and performance. Media texts, practices and institutions work through language, sound and images, and our experiences of them take place within specific cultural contexts.
Media Studies as a discipline comprises theories and methods for examining and creating media texts and for analysing institutions, audiences and technologies. The theory and practical training provided by a degree in media is increasingly essential not only for work in creative and cultural industries, but also for the entire spectrum of industry and public sector institutions.
