You should have at least an upper second class honours degree or its equivalent in a social science subject. We particularly welcome applications from those with professional experience in the media and communication fields and, in this case, we would accept a degree in other subjects. Exceptionally we may consider professional experience instead of a first degree.
Months of entry
This programme offers an intensive, year-long exploration of the relations between politics, media and communications. It aims to provide:
*An advanced understanding of theoretical and applied knowledge in the intersecting fields of politics and communication research.
*The flexibility to pursue particular topics of interest in the fields of media, politics and communication, culminating in an independent research project in politics and communications.
*The opportunity to take courses taught in the Department of Government, as part of the programme options.
*An ideal preparation for research work and employment in media, politics, communication and related fields.
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 at LSE.
