Welcome to Media, Culture and Creative Practice
Media, Culture and Creative Practice is a dynamic course, which involves both practical and theoretical elements. On the practical side, students develop an understanding of and skills in photography, advertising campaigns, news programmes, digital publishing, film and documentary production and post production techniques, and in the third year students are given the opportunity to plan and produce a major creative project. On the theory side, students explore the ways in which we understand the terms media and culture both today and historically, and analyse how a range of media forms such as film, television, photography and literature produce cultural meaning. The media dominates our lives now and on the MCCP programme students critically examine the interationc between media and society. The course also considers how individual and cultural identities are formed, what power audiences and media practitioners have, as well as issues such as censorship, globalisation, and ideology. MCCP is truly interdisciplinary, bringing together academics with expertise in Media and Cultural Studies and experience in media industries.
