The face of the world’s media is changing as we consume news in a more diverse way than ever before. Our media and journalism degrees offer you endless opportunities to strengthen your skills as a creative thinker and effective writer, and teach you how to engage audiences across the spectrum of media platforms.
While studying with us you’ll be a part of our creative community, helping you to gain new skills and inspire your work. You’ll be able to draw on expertise from specialists in other areas as television production, photography and film to enhance your projects. Your fellow peers will provide a rich source of collaboration opportunities, some built into the course structure and others which you’ll discover as you make friends, expand your network across courses and become a creative collaborator.
Our teaching staff bring a wealth of industry experience from organisations such as the BBC, LBC and The Guardian, as well as industry contacts from Private Eye, Sky News, Vogue and many more.

Find out what some of our students and graduates think about their time at UCA
"The staff are all incredibly helpful and have so much background experience in the subject. We have been able to do a whole range of things, from making a newspaper to filming a television news programme. It is an incredibly varied and interesting course, and there’s a great atmosphere among the students. "
"The course has been a great experience for me to expand on my creative skills, some that I’ve built on and others that I’ve developed purely whilst I’ve been here. The course certainly pushes you to try new ideas and experiment, something that I used to be quite hesitant to do. "
