Course content

MA Global Media Management at Winchester of Arts explores how the internet, social networks and mobile media are transforming the way news, entertainment and communications are produced and consumed. Covering contemporary topics ranging from gamification to citizen journalism, you’ll learn about communication strategies, management practices and explore the latest debates through projects using social media, photography, video and blogging.

You’ll learn how to analyse this fast-changing landscape - and influence its development. Real-life case studies will help you examine organisations’ communications strategies, learning how ideas are developed and how users respond to them.

The course is taught in an art-school environment, so you'll be using industry-standard software, cameras and video equipment. You’ll have the opportunity to develop your own media campaign, a research project and critical paper on a topic of your choice and attend behind-the-scenes visits and field trips.

With a strong emphasis on employability, the course will help you to develop your professional profile in preparation for a role in the creative and communications industries, or for further study at PhD level.
