Career Prospects

Career Prospects

We take your future seriously which is why Employability is a central theme of our teaching, embedded in the curriculum.

Develop Vital Skills

As a Communication and Media student, you will develop a wide range of skills throughout your degree which are vital for many careers. The broad commercial and cultural understanding of how the media and creative industries operate represents a crucial skill-set, central to careers from broadcasting to marketing. You will also gain transferable skills such as research and critical analysis, problem-solving and the ability to construct arguments and convey your ideas effectively – all of which are highly valued by employers in any workplace setting.

Extracurricular Activities

Many Communication and Media students are involved in activities within the University such as writing for and managing LSMedia, an online student newspaper, and working at LSRadio, the local student radio station, developing skills which give them the confidence to impress employers in the media sector and elsewhere.

Work Placement

We work closely with the university’s award winning Careers & Employability Service to offer a 30 credit, year-long module (SOTA300) which incorporates placement with a local company, group or institution related to your subject, providing practical/vocational experience.
