Media and communications have never had greater global importance or value, making degrees in these fields, perhaps the most fascinating and broadly accessible, as today.

Most online households were still using dial-up modems, and ten years ago the internet was unheard of! Since then, media and communications have grown to be even bigger businesses in just a small time.
