 Equip students with a thorough theoretical and methodological grounding in media and communication studies; allow students to apply up-to-date research skills to carry out their own original research for the dissertation and beyond; produce reflective and well-trained graduates who understand the multiplicity of social, cultural, political and technological complexities of digital media and who will be able to solve complex problems and make informed decisions in their future careers.
