Brands, Communication and Culture

This degree offers you the opportunity to study one of the major areas in contemporary media and communications - branding. The programme introduces you to the variety of ways in which brands are developed and used, and helps you to understand how the growth of branding - in business, but also in politics, government, sport and culture - has changed the societies we live in. This programme aims to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the history and development of brands and branding, and their relationship to contemporary forms of communication and culture. Specifically, you should acquire an in-depth knowledge of the social, political and economic backdrop against which branding has become so important, and an understanding of the key themes and debates surrounding its development and use, including the relationship between brands and intellectual property, and the extent to which branding promotes or inhibits openness and transparency within organisations. You will also improve your ability to think critically and creatively about contemporary communications and cultural practices. When you have completed the programme you will have at your disposal a range of tools that will enable you to analyse contemporary communications, to make judgments about their significance and value and be able to thoughtfully contribute to contemporary communications.
