Study media and communication

Why study media and communication

Media and communication at Kingston examines the expanding role media and cultural industries play in contemporary society, and equips you with the skills to take part in and shape this process.

A wide range of modules explore issues relating to production and consumption of media and cultural objects, such as television, news, art, music and digital media texts, while also giving you the practical skills you will need in the workplace to create, manage and critically evaluate and research these objects as professionals.

You will find that our curriculum is organised around four interdependent strands:

  • Histories, theories and debates;
  • Media production and creative practice;
  • The analysis of media texts, practices and contexts;
  • The media industries and professions.

Undergraduate courses

These courses have been carefully designed to ensure you are equipped with the essential skills and knowledge necessary for successful undergraduate study in the discipline.

You can also study media in combination with journalism.

Postgraduate courses

A wide range of option modules allows you to specialise in research areas that interest you within this broad field.

Kingston University students talk about why they chose study the Media and Communication MA and what they gained from their time at Kingston.
