This talk is focussed on the undergraduate programmes within the Media subject area.

Media Matters

The School of Humanities at the University of Hertfordshire regularly hosts a series of on-campus talks inviting media experts from across the country to discuss the importance of the media industry in the 21st Century. With on-campus events now cancelled, we wanted to continue to offer you this opportunity to learn and be inspired by media experts. Here you will find previous talks from our Media Matters series recorded, so you can watch them at home.

Where you'll study

Media is taught on the de Havilland Campus at the University. de Havilland is home to four academic schools of study: Business, Law, Education and Humanities. Here you’ll also find our extensive Sports Village and our main performing arts venue; the Weston Auditorium.

In 2020, we opened our newest facility on the de Havilland Campus, the £12 million Enterprise Hub. This new building includes space for socialising, teaching and an Incubation Centre for supporting small businesses in their growth stage.

Here's a look around our amazing facilities where we teach Media at Herts.
