The Media Studies degree course at University Centre Peterborough is getting a brand new look with revised modules and new practical elements for film and TV production.
To keep pace with the fast-changing media environment, the Media Studies degree at UCP is changing from September 2016. The degree, which is validated by Anglia Ruskin University, already equips students for a career in the media industry, but from September it will reflect changes in digital and online technology, as well as introducing more practical production elements.
These changes will make the degree more suitable for students who want to explore all aspects of media production, with an increased emphasis on practical learning, reflecting the significant vocational nature of this subject.
