The BA Media and Communications programme encourages critical enquiry into how media inform, persuade and make an impact. Students investigate current social, professional and technological issues, and develop responses using writing, image, sound, post-production techniques and more. Explore their research projects below – and meet the content-creators of tomorrow.
The film and media industries are not just about production and post-production, but also roles in scriptwriting, marketing, distribution, historical research and archival work, education, organising live events, and studying audiences and identifying target markets for forthcoming media releases. Our final year students are prepared for these career opportunities.
Sound Design is an innovative programme in the School, with students achieving high scores and graduating with great skills and creative sonic portfolios.

MA Digital Arts builds upon the foundations Digital Art, Fine Art, Sound Design, Film, Television, VFX, Graphic Design, Animation and Media Studies. At the core of the programme is an interdisciplinary approach which utilises the School of Design’s facilities and staff from across a variety of contemporary creative fields. Each student is encouraged to examine and explore their individual practice from diverse viewpoints which is challenged through studio based practice, visiting artist lectures and group critique. We provide graduates with skills that are highly valued in a global economy where boundaries between creativity and technology are increasingly fluid. Modules are designed to encourage the development of personal specialisms through a diverse range of art practices. Graduates will be ready to enter a wide range of artistic fields and international organisations, while making a contribution to the production of new aesthetics and future uses of creative technologies.
