What does it actually mean to say we live in a global or globalised
media and communication environment? What kind of technological,
social and cultural changes are implied, produced or hidden by this

This Global Media and Communications MA degree allows you to develop
the necessary theoretical frameworks and conceptual tools to analyse
and to critically evaluate the implications of these developments.

The course explores through current research and scholarship, the
globalisation of the communication and media industries, media
ownership and concentration, international agencies, the new
communication order, and ethical/rights issues in global media.

By choosing specialist modules and undertaking a research project,
you will investigate the role of the world’s dominant media
organisations and the oppositional voices countering them.

There are opportunities to explore contested issues in depth through
seminars, to participate in open forum discussions, and to explore
particular interests leading to guided research and a substantial,
supervised MA dissertation.
