This programme aims to provide suitably qualified you with the opportunity to develop a deep understanding of the field of media and communication at theoretical and practical levels. The programme is intended for graduates from the fields of media and communication, the social sciences, advertising and public relations, for individuals already working in the media and trying to gain a more profound understanding of their field, and for others who want to develop and extend the range of their theoretical and professional media skills. It is also a stepping stone for any individual wanting to pursue a PhD in the media and communication field.
You will graduate with a critical and theoretical knowledge of the contexts of communication studies in combination with the opportunity for developing practical skills in digital media production. These, combined with the strong English language skills that studying at XJTLU gives, produces students who will be very attractive employees for Chinese and international companies in an increasingly globalised workplace.

The programme will:

• give you an advanced critical understanding of key issues, concepts and theories and the relationship between theory and practice in the fields of media and communication
• instil in you a sound knowledge and understanding of media language and its iterations on different media platforms
• encourage your exploration of the implications of media analysis for work purposes
• help you develop an understanding of current methodology as it is embodied in media and communication practices
• encourage you to engage with theories underlying current views on communicative practices, including the importance of global and local media manifestations
• engage with and critically appreciate the connections made between theory and practice in the field of media and communication
• foster your research skills and techniques
• provide hands-on expertise through practical modules and a work placement

In addition, the programme provides an overview of the contemporary theoretical, methodological, practical and ethical principles that underpin research in the field of media and communication and develops your skills, knowledge and understanding further in the theory and practice of applied media work.

• Global Media Cultures
• Contemporary Media Theory
• Digital Ethics
• Social Media Management
• Contemporary Chinese Media Environment
• Research Methods in Communication
• Interactive and Emerging Technologies

• Practical Skills Development (audio/video, web design, print media)

Students will graduate with a combination of critical and theoretical knowledge of the contexts of communication studies in combination with the opportunity for developing practical skills in digital media production. These, combined with the strong English language skills that studying at XJTLU gives, produces students who will be very attractive employees in an increasingly globalised workplace, for Chinese and international companies.

About the course

It is a commonplace that communication is at the core of crucial aspects of human life, and that a lot of that communication is mediated. In recent years, however, mediated communication has reached new levels of importance in social and cultural domains stretching from business to identity formation, and a lot of that communication is technically and financially underpinned by global networks of computation and communication. The academic fields of media, communication and cultural studies have responded by re-examining long-established frameworks for understanding communications and also by considering the need for new paradigms fitting new objects of study.

The MA in International Communications Studies - which is designed to meet the needs of graduates from both a communications and non-communications studies background - provides an opportunity not only to study communications against the background of recent theoretical and methodological developments, but also to gain an insight into the skills and knowledge required by the contemporary media and communication industries.

Aims

The aims of the MA International Communications Studies programme are to enable students to:

  • Enhance their knowledge and understanding of the theoretical bases of verbal and non-verbal communication
  • Enhance their knowledge and understanding of the cultural, social, political and economic bases of communications internationally
  • Acquire a high level of proficiency in an East-Asian language or in one European language other than English
  • Develop their intellectual skills
  • Make use of some of the specialised forms of knowledge in the disciplines represented on the degree
  • Practice and develop a wide range of transferable skills that will prepare students for further study and for employment

Course Structure

The compulsory modules strike a balance between, on the one hand, grounding the student’s learning in the classic concepts, theories and methods of media, communication and cultural studies, and, on the other hand, exploring contemporary trends in online business models, international news flows, the use of Big Data etc.

Towards the end of the second semester, each student is assigned a dissertation supervisor based on project proposals.

Semester One

Compulsory modules provide the core skills and knowledge needed to analyse various forms of communication in their contemporary social and cultural settings as well as an opportunity to acquire either a modern European (French, Spanish, German) or East-Asian language (Japanese or Chinese). 

Semester Two

Students will continue to study their chosen language. Students will continue to develop their dissertation projects with the aid of their supervisors and in the compulsory module. Optional modules allow students to immerse themselves in topics suiting their interests and future career goals.
