  • Offers a distinctive combination of media theory and creative media practice, with opportunities to tailor the course depending on your own skills and interests

Throughout the course students have the opportunity to develop practical skills in areas including film-making, photography, and digital media production. Modules range from 2nd year’s Creating Awareness Campaigns – where students develop campaigns about social and political issues that matter to them – to our Documentary: Theory and Practice module where students create valuable films about the local area (watch some of these films on the Stoke Stories website). In the third year, students can choose to write a research-led dissertation or produce a major practical project and participate in the final year exhibition.

Students also have the chance to explore urgent social and political issues associated with the rise of social media, changes in news production, and relationship between the media and power, in our theoretically-focused modules that are taught by leading researchers in these fields. See the degree structure and typical modules here.

We also have more detailed information on our Media blog, about topics ranging from work experience opportunities to staff research.
