Communications at Exeter is an exciting and interdisciplinary subject area. Our degree programmes will introduce you to the historical development of communication technologies and help you think critically about how these technologies have become increasingly central to everyday life. You will learn about the production of different media texts – from printed newspapers to podcasts and content of social media platforms – and think critically about the ways that different audiences and users interact with these products in different contexts.

You will learn practical skills in content creation and explore different methods of approaching the study of communications, from both the empirical social sciences and the arts and humanities.

You will be taught by experts who actively publish in a wide range of research fields, including critical media studies, cultural studies, media anthropology, data and infrastructure studies, internet studies, migration studies, cultural policy, video game studies, and much more.

Subject Leader, Communications
