Course overview

The transition into adulthood is often viewed as challenging and complex. It is also a time of fresh opportunities and new discoveries. Young people are represented in contemporary social concerns ranging from unemployment, social relationships to youth protests-at the same time they have become a pulsating presence in the media and in the creative arts.

This programme is an interdisciplinary course that provides an understanding of youth in its social, cultural and political context. With both theoretical and practice-based elements, it combines the insights and methodologies of cultural studies, criminology, media studies, sociology and psychology to provide insights into everything from youth and community work to urban gang life; and from young people's social welfare to the history of hip-hop.

Developing strong IT and digital media skills also forms an integral part of this degree.

Added Value: There will be opportunities for you to acquire practical skills in computing, video production and multimedia creativity.
