BA (Hons) Media and English with Foundation Year

This course features a co-ordinated approach to the study of English and Media. The aim of this integrated joint degree is to break down the artificial barriers that have separated the written word from contemporary forms of communication such as radio, television and multimedia platforms.

The English component of the award complements its Media partner by maintaining a balance between the study of canonical literature and the incorporation of media texts such as popular music and drama, film and television adaptation and other media. On this course you will learn about the ways in which media and literature both reflect and shape our understanding of the world, and our perceptions of our place in that world.
