Course content

This unique double degree enables you to study for one year at LSE in London, the UK's media capital, and one year at the Centre for Film and Media Studies at the University of Cape Town – the highest-ranked university on the African continent, with close links to Cape Town’s media and film industry and NGO sector.

The programme will provide you with a critical exploration of mediation in the global context, examining processes of globalisation in relation to organisation, production, consumption and representation in media and communications. In our ever increasingly globalised world, international experience gained on one of our global programmes is invaluable and provides an excellent knowledge and experience base to work from.
