We live in a media saturated world. Study with our exciting interdisciplinary team to learn how it works, how you can succeed, and how you can make a difference

The Media, Film and Communication programme offers two undergraduate majors: Film and Media Studies, and Communication Studies. We also offer an exciting range of postgraduate study options.

Students can take one or both of our majors as part of their undergraduate degree. Both majors are designed to be flexible and responsive to the needs and interests of students, and both provide skills that lead to a comprehensive and diverse range of future careers.

Our students enjoy the rewards of our strong research culture, which keeps up with this rapidly changing world. They also enjoy studying with our committed and supportive teaching staff, who are experts in their fields.
