Our teaching staff are leading researchers in the field. They help you to answer questions such as: How can social media empower – but also endanger – users? What are the ethical dilemmas that new digital technologies create? How do media help construct – but also distort – our ideas about identity? The degree also gives students the opportunity to create blogs, podcasts, videos and other creative media.
