Course Summary

The MSc Media, Communication and Development offer an intensive, year-long exploration of a wide range of contemporary issues in media, communications and development. The main aim of the programme is to offer an advanced interdisciplinary education and training in contemporary theory and research in the field of media, communication and development, and their application in the Global South, with a particular emphasis on low income country contexts. The programme will enable you to examine the intersection of the fields of media and communications and development research critically, and to develop an understanding of a range of theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of development, media and communication. It will provide you with research training, which will prove valuable if you wish to go on to pursue MPhil/PhD research in the media, communication and development field, and will prepare you for work in a variety of media, communication and development related careers. On graduating, our students enter a variety of careers in the UK and abroad, including NGO communications, broadcasting, journalism, advertising, new media industries, political marketing, market research, regulation and policy, media management and research in both the public and private sectors.
