The Digital Media and Communication (DMC) BA Honours is a communication degree for the 21st century. It is not tied to a particular media industry, but instead recognises the ongoing practical and conceptual convergence between technologies, industries and ways of communicating.
DMC graduates will be skilled researchers, critical thinkers and creative communicators. You will understand the production, distribution and uses of networked digital media, and will have informed critical perspectives on the social and cultural signiﬁcance of mediated communication. You will be taught by internationally renowned academics from Westminster´s top-rated Communication and Media Research Institute (CAMRI), as well as by practitioners with a range of professional backgrounds.
You will develop high-level skills through a rigorous programme of academic study, through producing websites to a professional standard, and through devising and conducting an original research project. You will also gain the transferable and cognitive skills necessary for lifelong personal and professional development. Many of our graduates build successful careers in the creative industries, but the degree will also enable you to work across a broader range of sectors and professions. It is ideal for those planning to pursue postgraduate study, and will give you the competitive edge in a careers market that values high-level skills in research, critical thinking and communication.
