In Creative Media, available modules enable you to develop expertise in areas of digital design and creative practice including graphic design, animation, motion graphics, illustration and photography.
As well as developing your creative work and digital 'skills', you will be introduced to the creative industries and the multitude of professions and careers associated with them. Many of your projects will respond to 'live' briefs set in collaboration with industry professionals. With their own, impressive experience as creatives, your lecturers, too, are expertly placed to share with you their inside knowledge of professional work.
Journalism is vocationally focused and aims to support you to acquire the knowledge and skills that will equip you to work in today's multi-platform media environment.
You are taught by experienced, trained and still practising journalists in state-of-the-art broadcasting facilities (including new radio studios linked to a newsroom and newly refurbished TV studios). There are opportunities for work placements with local media organisations (including the BBC) and a host of guest lectures by high-profile visitors to the course. You are able to tailor your studies to focus on particular aspects of journalism (from sports journalism to political journalism) or to branch out into wider areas of media and communications. Your learning is hand-on, with an emphasis on supporting you to seek journalism and communications roles once you have graduated.
