Sociology and Media Trip to Lancaster University

In a joint departmental venture, 18 Sociology and Film and Media students travelled to Lancaster University for a taster day to experience work and life at a top university. 
Students were given three fantastic lectures on a variety of topics including horror, how film portrays young people and the sociology of social media.  Students then had some time to explore the campus before finishing their day with a final lecture.
