      Course programme

      The programme consists of a combination of modules in communication and English language studies (EFL) together with a range of introductory and advanced modules in media and journalism. The former aim to improve students’ English language abilities to a high level, while the latter include modules in technological aspects of media and journalism.This degree differs from the department’s English Studies with Media Communications or with Journalism programmes in the following ways:
      • it is designed particularly for EFL speakers;
      • students do suitable communication projects of their own choosing related to media or journalism;
      • there are no literature modules but there are free choice options;
      • there is an extra module on film making.
