Media Studies and Popular Music Production

What is Joint Honours?

A Joint Honours degree gives you the opportunity to study two subjects as one degree. This type of degree will broaden your skill set and enhance your career prospects. You can combine any two subjects as long as they’re in different zones, find out what you can combine this subject with.

Media Studies

A joint honours degree is perfect for you if you want to study more than one subject. You can combine Media Studies with one or two other joint honours courses that are offered at our Derby Campus to create your own joint honours degree. You will be taught with students studying , but the modules you'll study will depend on how you decide to combine the subjects you choose.

You'll develop a high level of media literacy and an understanding of forms of media power and manipulation.

Popular Music Production

Popular Music Production is part of the Electronics and Sound subject group, so you'll be studying with other students who are also interested in electronics, media technologies, and popular music. And our staff are actively involved in applied research in these areas.
