Course summary

This course provides insight into how journalism and the media is changing in a globalised context – from journalism ethics to internet governance, from community media to global communications and from crisis reporting to the transformative potential of new technologies.

MA Journalism, Media and Communications will help you to develop an in-depth understanding of how media work across a variety of social, cultural, economic and political contexts.

It focuses on the academic study of journalism, but also offer opportunities for the development of professional skills through optional modules in the second semester and through research.

The course provides insights into how journalism is changing in a globalised context, exploring key debates and issues in journalism studies today. It also provides training in the use of a range of research skills in journalism studies, to support academic scholarship in the field of journalism studies.

You’ll learn to assess how media are linked to forces of globalisation, political institutions, global responses to war and conflict, and environmental challenges, amongst others.

You’ll also explore the roles of new information and communication technologies, their opportunities and challenges, their democratic potential and their regulation. We’ll also consider together issues of citizenship, race, gender, ethnicity and class that are shaping contemporary forms of news media content.

This course offers knowledge and expertise for a career in the journalism, media and communication industries or as a foundation for PhD research.

This degree is not designed as a vocational degree and does not provide training in Journalism. You should not consider this degree as a professional qualification towards becoming a journalist.
