About this course

This interdisciplinary degree programme aims to develop a soundly based understanding of the various factors which influence the way communications now take place in an increasingly interconnected world at the same time as giving an insight into the skills and knowledge required by the contemporary international communications industries.

As such, the programme provides students with an opportunity to study a wide range of subjects, including contemporary mass media, journalism, new digital communications, the history of European, American and East-Asian societies, communications theory, the psychology of communications, arts and communications and cultural studies.

In addition, the study of Chinese (Mandarin) from beginners' to advanced level will form a core element in years 2 to 4. Students will also have an opportunity to enrich their studies by taking modules offered by International Studies and International Business
