What will I learn?

Our Global Communication and Development MA engages with the role of media and communication in articulating processes of social change.

The new media developments have prompted fresh thinking about the implications of technological change upon processes of social and political change. Set in contexts of globalization, the three central questions addressed by the global communications master's programme include: what kind of communications revolution does this signal; what kind of social change processes are we experiencing; and what are the conceptual tools we need in order to understand such transformations and dynamics?

You will develop a deep understanding of communications and development in a changing global context. You will consider major traditions, theories and frameworks of inquiry relevant to the analysis of global communications and development. Our Global Communication and Development MA investigates the debates surrounding communications and cultural policies for democracy, equality and the economy, focusing on diverse markets such as Latin America, South Africa and Asia.

By studying a global communications master's programme, you will consider major traditions, theories and frameworks of inquiry relevant to the analysis of global communications and development. Through a series of insightful lectures and seminars, you will investigate the social, economic, political and historical character of global communications and development and learn new communication infrastructures, tools and media practices.

You will learn from a passionate faculty of leading professionals and academics, offering a vibrant insight into the media and creative industries, through the sharing of specialised knowledge in information science, law, anthropology, political economy, political and social theory, ethnic studies and more.

Our Global Communication and Development master's programme will develop your critical understanding of how the media and creative industries work, along with insights into broader economic, social, and political issues. If you're looking to pursue a media, communication and development role within a global public, private or third-sector company or organisation, then this global communications master's programme is for you.
