Course summary

This unique double degree allows students to study for one year at LSE in London, the UK's media capital, and one year at the Centre for Film and Media Studies, University of Cape Town.

This programme will give students the opportunity to:

  • critically explore mediation in a global context, examining processes of globalisation in relation to organisation, production, consumption and representation in media and communications;
  • study a range of theoretical courses at LSE, flexibly tailoring the programme to develop specialist interests, culminating in an independent research project on a topic in global media and communications;
  • study a range of theoretical and/or practice-based courses at UCT and develop practical skills in an optional creative production at UCT;
  • gain professional experience during an internship in Cape Town;
  • prepare for high-level employment in media and communications-related professions anywhere in the world.

Students will be trained to examine the intersection of media and globalisation from an African vantage point. Students will gain an understanding of global media and communications in an African context and African media and communications in a global context. In our increasingly globalised world, international experience gained on one of our global programmes is invaluable and provides an excellent knowledge and experience base to work from.
