What will I learn?

The National University of Singapore (NUS) Master of Social Sciences in Communication, hereafter referred to as the MSocSci (Communication), is offered by the Department of Communications and New Media in the NUS Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.

In a relentlessly volatile media landscape shaped by technological advances and content proliferation, media professionals must be agile to keep pace with constant change.

Today, content is king, holding court on digital platforms that reach millions of people every day. The challenge for organisations in this age is to harness the power of content and wield it strategically to communicate effectively with their stakeholders.

The MSocSci (Communication) recognises that competency gap in the market, and is proud to be the first graduate programme to fill that void.

We provide mentorship to groom our students into leaders in the digital field, and equip our graduates with cutting-edge expertise to firmly grasp the essence of data in their communication plans.
