Is media studies worth it?Watch
If you enjoy the subjects, I would suggest you doing Media. It's because you have more things to learn in Media degree, including Journalism, PR, Advertising. It can be either hard or easy depend on which uni you go to. I'm doing joint honours (English + Media) in Newcastle and Media course here is intense tbf. It includes subjects like sociology, philosophy, politics and even psychology. Journalism seems a bit vocational and you shouldn't spend up to 3 years on it.
If you are looking for career-wise degree, don't do Media. I kind of regret picking it in my subject combination. Both journalism/media won't secure you a career as journalist. Most people working in media did English Literature, History, and Modern Languages. At the end of the day, those degrees can allow you to be flexible in other jobs (in case you don't get into media or you just change your mind).
