This programme offers an intensive, year-long exploration of a wide range of contemporary issues in media and communications.
It aims to provide a broad-based understanding of the development and forms of media and communications in relation to political economy, regulation and power, production and organisation, processes of mediation and influence, communication content and audience response. It offers an up-to-date engagement with diverse theoretical, conceptual and empirical developments in research on media and communications through a mix of compulsory and optional courses and an independent research project.
We attract students from a diverse range of backgrounds, often including professional experience working in media and communications-related fields. Indeed, the opportunity for cross-cultural meetings and exchange of ideas among the student body is a valuable feature of studying within the Department.
You may also be interested in the research track of this programme, which is particularly suited to students wishing to undertake MPhil/PhD degrees or pursue research-related careers.
