About

Your first semester critically engages with key theories and the second focuses on developing your analytical, investigative and practical skills. During the final part of this Media and Culture course at Leeds Beckett University, you will complete a major independent project.

Your modules offer perspectives on a broad range of topics in relation to the study of media and culture, such as the effect of globalisation on media consumption, the impact new media platforms have had upon fandom, and how cultural identities are marginalised through mediatized images.

Work will be evaluated via a range of innovative assessment methods, including pitching your work to industry experts. You will learn collaboratively through seminars, guest lectures and workshops, with a wealth of opportunities to give your learning real-world context. Our academic staff's professional experience will ensure your expertise meets the expectations of potential employers.

Careers

You will develop a variety of transferable skills and build professional networks that will enable you to progress in industry, move into a new sector or set up your own venture. Alongside your major independent project, your proven critical analysis skills will create roles across a variety of industries, including television, cultural development, mobile technology management, journalism, marketing and events management.
