In today’s competitive marketplace, good communications and a solid reputation are key to a business’s survival and success. Lincoln’s MA in Media and Communications is designed to explore the role of this fast-growing employment area, by recognising the rapid changes taking place in the communications environment and enabling students to develop the media skills needed to work internationally across multimedia and digital platforms. There is an emphasis on the ability to critically assess contemporary issues in communications in both commercial and not-for-profit organisations.

The programme examines PR agencies and corporate bodies operating within a global remit. Students can research and critique developments in communications practice, with a focus on an ethical approach. Developing eloquence and confidence is explored on the course, along with the key skills required to become a flexible communications professional.

Students can gain practical experience by joining the University’s student-run communications company, Cygnet PR.
