Our graduates have gone on to careers including broadcasting, journalism, social media, advertising and marketing, corporate communications and public relations, arts administration, political campaigning (including political parties, trade unions and charities), management, government, and the civil service. 

English students will, through a range of entirely optional modules, construct a programme combining English Language and Literature, or specialise in either. The Language modules aim to provide understanding of the historical, social and psychological factors that shape the English language used in everyday life, while the Literature modules are designed to foster interpretive skills applying to a wide range of genres and historical periods. 

If you're studying Communications you will gain a deep understanding of film, journalism, digital media and language: how do these various communication systems shape the world around us, and our perception of it?

From politics and human rights, to celebrity and culture: you will learn how such ideas are influenced, expressed and shared. You will have the opportunity to explore a wide range of media and communication forms, analysing how they are organised as text, how they represent the world to us and ourselves to the world (from global power politics to constructions of individual identity), and how the media industries are organised to produce and profit from them.
