This course introduces the study of media, communication and culture at undergraduate level, addressing some of the most pressing issues and critical debates in the field today. Through social media, global news and the arts we are in constant contact with many different people, cultures and ideas. This course will deepen your understanding of traditional and digital media and communication, exploring ways in which people and societies engage with technologies, including contemporary cultural phenomena such as social media, streaming cultures and digital fandom. You will explore the role of language and media in society worldwide, and how the way we communicate has the power to shape the way we see the world, engage with other people and other times, and construct collective and individual identities.
