Course summary

LJMU's Mass Communications MA investigates the significance of media forms, the systems within which they operate and the challenges they face.

  • Develop exceptional transferable skills such as presentation, communication and interpersonal skills, skills in creative and analytical writing, organisation and time management
  • Study a course designed for students from a wide range of academic or vocational backgrounds, including social media managers, public relations and journalism
  • Follow a curriculum delivered by academic staff with a proven record in research and teaching
  • Join the cultural workforce with an understanding of how changes in policy and the politics of culture effect communication

Media industries and their content are often subject to scrutiny and debates concerning their communicative power and influence, professional practice, ethics and law. Studying enduring issues such as the impact of mass media on audiences will equip you for a career in the industry. The year-long Research Methods module introduces important methodological approaches pertinent to the study of Mass Communications and provides you with a grounding in key skills required for study at Masters level.

Innovative modules such as Digital Cultures will enable you to work on a distinctive collaborative project with the marketing team at Tate Liverpool. You will study the quickly evolving area of new media by analysing contemporary media policies and considering the potential future direction of national and international media regulation.
