Masters degrees in Communication & Media Studies cover subjects associated with the creative film and publishing industries as well as the public relations, marketing and advertising professions.
Many courses are highly vocational, with opportunities available to study advanced techniques in Film, Radio and TV Production as well as Journalism and Print Media. Other qualifications explore the business of media management or the importance of Public Relations and Internal Communications for companies and other organisations.
Many degrees are taught courses, but some also include practical placements and appropriate research projects.
As their name suggests, these courses develop the skills necessary to communicate ideas and experiences professionally in a range of media – whether as a print journalist, computer game designer, or film and television screenwriter.
A Masters in Media Studies or a Masters in Communication Studies can also provide a route into other career paths. You may end up working professionally in brand management and public relations for a large organisation, or take up a career as a media analyst within a commercial company or academic think-tank.
