About

Are you curious to learn about how new digital technologies form our identities, shape our politics, affect audiences – and how you can influence change in the creative industries? Study Media Studies with an Approved Year Abroad (Hons) at University of Kent to explore how media shape us, how they can enrich our lives and how you, through creative practice, can shape the media. 

Overview

Media Studies with an Approved Year Abroad (Hons) at University of Kent is based in the School of Arts, a creative and academic hub for students in drama, film, media studies and art history. Together we occupy the award-winning Jarman building, which houses outstanding teaching facilities and media 

Our teaching staff are leading researchers in the field. They help you to answer questions such as: How can social media empower – but also endanger – users? What are the ethical dilemmas that new digital technologies create? How do media help construct – but also distort – our ideas about identity? The degree also gives students the opportunity to create blogs, podcasts, videos and other creative media.
