Program Overview

This course equips you with a deep understanding of media culture so you can communicate effectively between media makers, organizations, their clients and end users.

Why study media communications?

  • Graduates with strong digital media production and research skills are highly sought after in the cultural and media communications sectors.
  • Gaining insight into the development of our contemporary, globally-connected media landscape, you'll learn to develop your own media content, and become highly adept at communicating to diverse audiences.

Why UWE Bristol?

  • BA(Hons) Media Communications is for students looking to build their creative media skills, by understanding and researching audiences, and communicating ideas effectively to them.
  • You'll design your own projects and work with our external partners in Bristol's unique cultural and media industries to create a portfolio of work oriented to your chosen career.
  • Study a mix of theory, production and research-based modules, and carry out coursework, developing your confidence through writing, research, production, project design and coordination.
  • Develop enterprise skills and strong self-reliance, and gain the confidence and flexibility to adopt digital media innovations just over the horizon.
  • The course is immersed in diverse industry collaborations that link students to the city's key creative media makers and cultural organisations, including Watershed, the Pervasive Media Studio, Bristol Festival of Ideas, the Arnolfini and M-Shed museums.
  • Showcase your work to talent scouts and potential employers at the final year degree show, and focus on one of four specialist pathways, to reflect your interests and career plans.

Where can it take me?

  • The pattern of work placements and graduate destinations our students pursue represent a wide range of careers both within and outside the media sector.
