Media, Communication and Culture

This course is ideal for those who wish to pursue media, communications and cultural inquiry at an advanced level in order to develop media-based careers. It is also for practitioners who wish to explore the theoretical and conceptual basis of media and culture. This programme responds to an increasing demand for interdisciplinary study of the media in an age in which the 'cultural industries' have a huge impact on all dimensions of life.

Entry requirements

Applicants will normally have a first or upper second-class degree (or equivalent) from an approved university or college in the UK, or a recognised degree from abroad in a related subject in the Arts, Humanities or Social or Sport Sciences. Non-graduates with appropriate professional experience or other qualifications such as a second-class degree may be accepted on an individual basis after consideration by the Programme Convener. Interest in media and communication in the wider socio-political context and in different cultural forms, OR professional experience in cultural and media industries (either production or management) is essential. Applicants whose first language is not English will be required to demonstrate proficiency to the standards required by the University. Currently, an IELTS score of 6.5 is required for entry to postgraduate taught programmes. Students who fail to meet this standard at the point of application are recommended to attend a pre-sessional English course at the University, where such programmes also include modules related to the programme content on the Media, Communication and Culture programme. Applicants are strongly advised to commence this programme in September. Where applicants wish to commence their studies in January, they are asked to make contact with the Programme Convener to discuss this further.
