Media, Culture and Creativity
Are you interested in art, heritage, literature, music or theatre?

Why choose discovery modules from Media, Culture and Creativity?
In this Theme, you have the opportunity to engage with a whole range of media, cultural, and creative forms, outputs and practices. You can:
Grapple with questions of cultural analysis, critique and debate. What do they tell us about the world in which we live, about our past and our future, about ourselves and the human condition?
Examine the social, intellectual, and political importance of the creative, cultural and media industries. Why do these things matter?
Engage with creativity and performance. Compare different art forms and traditions. Learn how they influenced, reacted against and complemented each other.
Explore digital culture. Get switched on to the media and technology.
Watch the video, produced by LSTV - a student-run society, to find out more about Media, Culture and Creativity.

You may wish to explore a broad range of different topics, genres, and practices. Or you may prefer to specialise in a particular area, and develop a more in-depth understanding of what it entails.
Sub-themes are clustered around some of the key subject area divisions: art, creative practice, culture and critique, design, film and photography, heritage, literature, media and technology, music, theatre and performance. But you will find common ideas that run throughout: questions about identity, power, ethics, history, representation, diversity and freedom of expression.
Choose a rationale or exploratory pathway that works for you and see where it leads.
If you want to branch out into other Themes, ‘Language and Intercultural Understanding’ offers modules which cover global cultures. Alternatively, explore complementary modules from the ‘Personal and Professional Development’ and ‘Power and Conflict’ Themes.
