The Bachelor’s in Media and Culture puts the rapidly changing global media landscape centre stage and trains you to position yourself more critically within it, prepare yourself for careers in the media, at cultural institutions, and in academia. You will explore how and why particular media have certain roles in different cultural contexts and examine how they attract and direct our attention and shape our experiences of the world. You are invited to develop a more critical engagement with media by teaching you about the history and theory of film, television and cross-media culture. Studying how certain stories or facts are presented and disseminated by media, whose interests they serve, and what worlds they create, is central to this programme. You will also learn how media objects are created, as well as begin to create and use them yourself. Media and Culture is the ideal programme if you:

  • are interested in culture and media in the broadest sense.
  • have cultural and creative interests, as well as a critical and investigative attitude.
  • have a great passion and intellectual curiosity for film, television, popular culture, global culture, cross-media practices, and/or the arts.
  • would like to become a researcher, advise or supervise media makers, work at a media research agency, in the creative industry, in the media, for cultural organisations, or in academia.
