War reporting expertise at Swansea is reflected in three modules: war reporting, new media technology and social conflict, and reporting risk. 

War Reporting offers a historical overview of war journalism and war propaganda. After starting with 19th century conflicts such as the Crimean War, you then investigate the reporting of World War One and Two, the Spanish and Ethiopian civil wars, Korea, Vietnam and the two Gulf Wars.

New Media Technology and Social Conflict looks at technology in the development of social movements and social conflict. You will examine case studies on migration, anti-globalisation protests, green movements, religious clashes, racism and xenophobia.
