You will explore communication theories, political ideas, systems and processes and you will learn how to develop knowledge, construct arguments and communicate your findings in different ways. Whether you want to work in one of these areas, to research their impact or simply to understand more about our relationship with media, this programme provides a thorough introduction with plenty of opportunities to develop specialist skills.
A range of optional modules allows you to choose a range of topics from political science and communication and media. We teach all of our students to acquire strong research skills, and you’ll have the opportunity to practice them through independent or collaborative research.
This programme is available with a Year in Industry. Year Three is spent on a paid placement within an organisation in industry, broadly defined. You will be supported by the School of the Arts and the Department throughout, and your reflexive written account of the experience will contribute towards your final degree result. If you wish to study this programme with a Year in Industry, please put the option code ‘YI’ in the ‘Further Choices’ section of your UCAS application form.
