BSC (HONS) IN MEDIA INFORMATICS

This programme is specifically designed to provide:

  • A thorough understanding of issues in the areas of user interface design and human computer interaction.
  • An understanding of the nature of mass media, multimedia, and marketing communications.

This level introduces you to new media aspects of business, communication, and multimedia. Skills relevant to the general environment of business and IT are introduced, along with important and relevant skills for independent learning.

LEVEL 2

Compared with the BA (Hons) in Media Marketing there is a greater emphasis on multimedia techniques and tools. You will learn essential aspects of marketing communications, with a particular emphasis on writing and the use of modern media for communications and promoting.
