New course for 2020: BA (Hons) Media and Creative Industries is here!


Our new course the BA (Hons) Media and Creative Industries has launched this week and we are pretty pleased about it. It has taken a lot of thought and hard work and ideas and discussion and consultation and you name it, we left no stone unturned. The kernel of the idea began in 2014 and it takes a while for any good idea to pass all the tests: concept, time, energy, strategy, stress and approval. In fact, what we learned is that ideas get better as they pass each test, jump each hurdle and grow in response to each challenge. It's the process of getting the creative idea through the systems and into the world that makes us feel the most proud. So many people have been involved in this course development, from excellent external marketing agencies who collected the research from over 200 students and interviewed so many more. At least 12 of those students were kind enough to each make us a video of their personal perspectives on our course design, proposed modules and (in the end) those prospective students chose the title, not us. It was part of our ethos from the beginning that we would build a course not just based on what we wanted to teach but on what others wanted us to teach. So it was collaborative from inception.

To find out more about our new course see the central university study page or our departmental course page.
