Media units explore the development of media industries, forms and criticism, but focus particularly on current and emerging platforms and industries. In your final year you can explore your interests in depth by completing an independent project on a topic of your own choice, working with academics who are experts in their fields.
The creative industries sector in Manchester offers a broad range of opportunities in professions linked to film and media. The city is an excellent place to study this subject and to begin gaining experience and building your networks. We’ll help you to be ready for the world beyond university by giving you the opportunity to engage with external partners, and you may have the chance to study abroad as part of your Film and Media Studies (Hons) course from Manchester Metropolitan University, or to spend a year on a placement in industry in Britain or abroad.
Typical careers for Film and Media Studies graduates include research in film and media, programme development for television and radio, film education, teaching and journalism. Manchester is an ideal location with links to many professional media bodies in the North West, including HOME, Grimmfest, BBC Manchester and Granada Studios.
