Course content

This programme offers an intensive, year-long exploration of the governance and regulation of media and communication, including internet and digital platforms, press freedom, telecommunications, broadcasting and the converging media.

When urgent questions are being asked, after controversies such as the Edward Snowden revelations, about government’s influence on the internet and the power of media corporations, the content of this programme has never been more relevant.

The programme offers a broad-based understanding of the institutions and regulations that structure the development of media and communication systems, and covers policy, legal and economic aspects of media and communication services. It provides an up-to-date engagement with the latest developments in research on media and communications, specifically relating to communications governance at regional, national and international levels. It has a strong focus on international comparison, including at the European level, with opportunities to take courses in the Departments of Media and Communications, Government and Law.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to take full advantage of London’s status as the leading global media industry city.
