Narrative content creation is the driving force of any emergent, new, and/or established media form. This course focuses on writing for media and furthers academic practice with a digital humanities toolkit to theoretically engage content, markets, and creative practice.
Core theoretical and conceptual materials delivered throughout the course will be interrogated through, and embedded in, realistic industry and research focused projects in areas such as: audiovisual media and moving image; podcasts; blogs, and other forms of digital publications, marketing, and publicity design. This will enable you to enter an increasingly active sector of employment in media industries, and media research.
Our international teaching staff bring a distinctive, broad range of experiences from HE institutions overseas, and curriculum design reflects international and transnational media content. You will be encouraged to discover and share your cultural experiences in a number of international projects and assignments embedded in the course, including field trips or digital equivalent, as well as Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) projects.
The Media and Communications course is well placed to address many of the contemporary developments in media and cultural studies as well as those concerning the impact of new media technologies and environments within 21st-century cultures.
