BEng Communication & Media Studies
Despite being a central part to our existence, we tend to take for granted and to underestimate or even ignore the social and cultural impact of media communications in today’s world.
As a student on this course you will learn, both theoretically and practically, how the communication and information media actually work and what their importance to our society is.
This course enjoys a very close relationship with Sociology at Brunel, and particular attention is paid to the social and cultural dimensions of the media, and especially to the social and cultural consequences of the new technologies of communication and information. The focus of study is upon all aspects of society: its personal, social and cultural dimensions.

You can enter a wide variety of careers ranging from public relations and corporate communications to research and production work for video and television companies.
Although you will have plenty of practical experience in information technology and video production, this course is not designed to offer vocational qualifications in either information technology or film and television production.
Recent graduates now work in events and production co-ordination, research and buying in the media industries.
