Media, Culture, Heritage is an exciting subject area in the School of Arts and Cultures that brings together staff and students with diverse expertise to understand a complex fast-changing world and address public concerns locally and internationally. The unit offers innovative, immersive, and lively research and learning opportunities across the areas of Cultural Studies, PR, Journalism, Museum and Gallery Studies, Heritage, Film, and Communication.

Staff and students have access to a wealth of facilities and equipment, both on campus and in the local area. The unit is connected to the Culture Lab; a world-class multi-media research infrastructure.

The Media Culture Heritage unit is committed to a culture of transparency, accessibility, and diversity.

The course balanced academic theory with practical skills to work within the sector - using people working within the field was excellent.
