Explore the impact of media and communications on international policy and within a sociological context with this world-class MA.
This course is for students looking to explore international development through a communications lens as well as to assess the role that the media play in development and policy making.
At a time when ideas about freedom of expression, democracy, human rights and access to natural and material resources guide development projects across the world, the question about the role of media and communications for social change becomes ever more pertinent. As a result, this MA will particularly appeal to you if you have an interest in communication studies and cross-disciplinary interests in development studies, sociology and politics.
