Our postgraduate Media courses enable you to combine the study of film and media and gain a sound critical understanding of the strategic management operations of the contemporary media industries.

MA Film and Media interrogates key theories and methodologies across the twentieth century, with the opportunity to specialise in areas such as transnational media, European cinema, screen genres, and the relationship between media, culture and identity.

MSc Media Management focuses on research methods in media and culture while also analysing the practices and changing economic forces within the creative industries. Potential areas of specialism include strategic brand management, marketing planning, public relations and reputation management, entrepreneurship, innovation and the digital economy.

Key media theories can also be interrogated in depth on our MRes Masters by Research.
