The Foundation year prepares students for university level study. Successful completion of our Foundation course permits access to any of our Media or Humanities BA (Hons) degree courses, which include Public Relations, Media and Film and Television Studies— many of which can be taken singly as specialist degrees or together as ‘joint’ degree routes. The Foundation year begins with modules aimed at providing transferable study skills and then, in the second semester, gives students the opportunity to study more specialist modules, with a focus on various aspects of Media and Humanities.
Media, in all their variety, play an increasingly significant role in all aspects of our personal, social and professional lives. Understanding the media enables us not only to understand ourselves, our culture and the societies in which we live, but also helps us to understand the many opportunities that exist for employment in the creative and communication industries. The media landscape evolves rapidly, and this makes the study of what we do with our phones, tablets and other devices an exciting and constantly developing field.
Studying with us, you will:
- investigate the ways that the media can shape our understanding of gender, ethnicity, disability, and other aspects of identity and culture.
- develop an understanding of the role and responsibility of the media in a rapidly changing multicultural society.
- explore the power of communication in a local, national and global context.
- have the opportunity to produce your own media content in fully-equipped radio and TV studio facilities where you will learn key skills such as project management, editing, direction and production.
