What can I do with...

...a media degree?

Confused about your career options? This useful little tool helps you find out exactly what you can do with your media degree.



Having chosen to do a media degree, you might believe that you’re destined to spend your mornings irritating people with your ‘wacky’ banter as you play the ‘hottest new tunes’ on Radio 1’s ‘Breakfast Show’. However, a media degree will actually provide you with a brilliant platform from which to enter a range of interesting sectors...



Your head might be crammed full of useful (and some not-so-useful) information, but your media degree will also help you to develop a wealth of useful skills…

Commercial Awareness

You know the business world like the back of your hand. You can look at situations from a commercial perspective and use your business know-how to influence success.

Communication (Oral)

All mouth, no trousers? Nope, but you can speak to people in a calm, concise and engaging manner.

Communication (Written)

You may not be a romantic poet, but you can write in a professional, succinct and appealing fashion.


You have the ability to come up with creative and innovative ideas. You’re so far outside the box you can’t even see the box. The box is merely a dot on the horizon.


You don’t need somebody holding your hand the entire time. You can work on your own, use your initiative and keep yourself motivated.


You’re a shepherd, not a sheep. You can lead from the front and take charge when decisions need to be made.

Problem Solving

You’re a bit like Jimmy McNulty in The Wire. You might swear a lot, but you can solve problems quickly and logically without too much head-scratching.


Like a pig sniffing for truffles, you have the ability to get your head down and find exactly what you’re looking for: useful information.

Social Media

You understand the power of a well-crafted Tweet. You’re a master of the blogosphere. You’re a veritable social media wizard.


You’re not an angry loner. Far from it! You have the ability to work effectively as part of a team.

Technical Production

You can handle a camcorder better than that guy in Cloverfield. Filming? Editing? Sound recording? You name it, you’ve got it nailed.

Time Management

You may not have ‘Bernard’s Watch’, but you can manage your time effectively and meet deadlines without any last minute stress.



Like any successful media mogul, you should have a pretty strong idea of what you want to achieve by now. If you’re not quite there yet, though, check out the different roles you could secure with your media degree…
