Course content

The MA in Media and Communications offers a broad look at many aspects of the media - sociological, economic, cultural. It invites you to think critically about the larger, global media worlds of the present age, and about your own location in the mediated society in which you live.

The coursework is exclusively theoretically based, so you will need some foundation in the (broadly conceived) intellectual arenas of the social sciences or the humanities in order to grasp the dominating aims and objectives of the programme.

Information for international students

If your first language is not English, you normally need a minimum score of 7.0 in IELTS or equivalent.
