Employers are looking for people with flexible, transferable skills, and this course will encourage you to think critically and communicate effectively – useful qualities for a career in any field. However, the degree will be particularly useful if you would like to work in the culture, communications or leisure sectors, and also gives a good foundation for postgraduate study. If you aim to work in television or the media, it will provide a solid base from which you can develop the additional skills and portfolio of work needed for roles in these areas..
In addition to building expertise in your own discipline, our courses will also help you to develop key transferable skills that you'll need for professional life or further study once you graduate.
As well as a range of careers and employability activities at Kingston, we also offer you the chance to apply and develop your skills in live contexts as an integral part of your course. Opportunities include:
In your final year, you'll get the opportunity to complete a major 'capstone' project where you can apply the knowledge and skills you have acquired to a range of real issues in different contexts. This is a great way to learn and is a valuable bridge to employment or further research at masters level.
If you decide that you would like to go on to postgraduate study after your undergraduate course, we offer a 10 per cent discount on our postgraduate course tuition fees to our alumni. Here are some courses that might interest you:
