About

Whether through social media, advertising, film, music or museums, the media (in all its forms) helps shape our understanding of the world. It exposes us to news, views and ideas that can negatively or positively sway our sense of self and the world around us, not to mention the media itself. To learn more, join this Global Media and Culture programme from Keele University.
