Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

This course aims to give students the opportunity to explore topics of personal interest in media history, theory, criticism, and practice under the supervision of an academic staff member. Independent study projects provide a means for students to investigate topics that are relevant to their studies but are not covered within the programme’s set curriculum. They also allow students to extend their examination of topics introduced other classes.

Course Intended Learning Outcomes
