Course content

From Al Jazeera to Hollywood, News Corporation to China Central TV, the media increasingly operate in a global context. This course offers a comprehensive interdisciplinary approach to global media, and is designed for those who work in, or want to work in, the media industries.

You will examine key developments in the media and communications industries associated with the logic of globalisation, and explore the complex nature of the globalisation process in the media. You will gain a relevant, well-grounded, high-quality education and skill base, enabling you to develop a clear and comprehensive understanding of communication and the mass media.

Based on continuous assessment, the course is taught in lectures and seminars by the team from Westminster's top-rated Communication and Media Research Institute (CAMRI ). You will be part of a bustling multicultural academic department which boasts a strong research culture, and you will be able to attend the regular talks by outside speakers (academics and practitioners) on a variety of communication and mass media issues.

Internships

Students are encouraged to seek work experience in the industry and relevant opportunities are regularly shared by staff. This often leads to full-time employment once graduating from the course.

In addition, the MA course takes advantage of the vibrancy of the media environment in London and students often benefit from events taking place locally, eg at Frontline Club.

Equally, there are a number of activities run within the Department that provide students with opportunities for networking and increasing their employability. CAMRI and associated research centres run regular seminars, workshops and conferences which our students can attend for free. These workshops and conferences bring together academic researchers, industry representatives as well as regulators and policy-makers.

Graduate employment

The Global Media MA course is well established and has a strong international reputation. Our students are very successful in gaining employment, in many cases straight from graduating the course. Graduates have found jobs in middle- and upper-management in media industries, as well as the broader private (eg consulting and advertising firms) and public sector (eg government ministries, regulatory authorities), international organisations and NGOs. Some graduates also continue to do PhD research. Success in their Masters degree has allowed many who have been in media jobs before joining the course to move into more senior roles within their companies or organisations and to transfer to new sectors of the media.

Graduates from the Global Media MA have found roles in a wide variety of media and communications organisations including Al Jazeera, CCTV, and many other organisations around the world.
