About the Double Degree programme
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 Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, University of Southern California (USC) – a top US communication school with close links to the Los Angeles media industry.
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 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.

LSE is an international community, with over 140 nationalities represented amongst its student body. We celebrate this diversity through everything we do.

Fees and funding

Funding at LSE
The School recognises that the cost of living in London may be higher than in your home town or country, and we provide generous scholarships each year to home and overseas students.
This programme is eligible for needs-based awards from LSE, including the Graduate Support Scheme, Master's Awards, and Anniversary Scholarships.
Selection for any funding opportunity is based on receipt of an application for a place – including all ancillary documents, before the funding deadline.
In addition to our needs-based awards, LSE also makes available scholarships for students from specific regions of the world and awards for students studying specific subject areas.
