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

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). These modules include Communications Theory and Research Methodologies; Approaches to Globalisation and Contemporary Communications and Contemporary Communications society and Culture. The module Communications Theory and Research Methodologies is specifically designed to provide students with insight into how the theory and methodology of contemporary communications can be applied directly to differing forms of media production.

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 Media and Communication Research Methods 2. Optional modules allow students to immerse themselves in topics suiting their interests and future career goals.

Compulsory modules include:

Current Issues in International Communications
Media and Communication Research Methods 1
Media and Communication Theory
Media and Communications Research Methods 2
Dissertation in International Communications Studies

Optional modules:

Journalism: Theory and Practice
Chinese Cinemas (level 4)
Digital and Creative Media
Digital Games as Communication

Students must also study a European language (Spanish, French or German) or East-Asian language (Chinese or Japanese) for International Students (students cannot elect to study their first language) and a European Language (Spanish, French or German) or Japanese for Chinese students. Students will be able to enter study at a level appropriate to their individual needs ranging from beginners through to intermediate and advanced.

About the course

This course is designed to meet the needs of those who are:

- Planning a career in international higher education, in any capacity
- Teaching or researching in this field, or plan to do so in the future
- Working in higher education administration and want to advance their knowledge and understanding of internationalisation and its implications

In countries and institutions across the world, internationalisation has emerged as a central feature of contemporary Higher Education policy and practice. It takes a variety of forms but its impact and significance can be observed across all aspects and functions of university life – teaching, research, management and administration.

The MA International Higher Education is a unique and innovative programme that addresses this diversity of form and impact in a way that is informed by research and theory but is also firmly focused on practice. It draws on the University of Nottingham’s experience at the forefront of innovation in this field, on its leading academic reputation, and on the expertise of its staff with extensive knowledge and experience in international and transnational higher education.

The programme is designed to:

- Enhance your professional competencies in academic, managerial and administrative roles
- Develop your critical and theoretical understanding of the key issues in international higher education
- Enable you to transform future practice for yourself, for individuals and for institutions
- Expand your career opportunities

Objectives

The objectives of the programme are that you will:

Be aware and understand the major themes, issues and debates in international and transnational higher education

Have explored the interface between policy, scholarly research and practice in relation to international and transnational higher education

Understand the continuities and discontinuities between policy, practice and research

Be prepared to develop, challenge and question policies, strategies, practice and research

Be confident in constructing arguments about international and transnational higher education based on evidence and theory

Be able to formulate and investigate significant research questions about international and transnational higher education

Course content and structure

We begin by exploring the broad context of higher education in an era of globalisation and how this is driving diverse forms of internationalisation in higher education. We then look at strategies and managerial demands of different models of internationalisation, followed by a specific focus on the core activity of enhancing student experiences in an internationalising institution.

The programme concludes with an opportunity for in-depth investigation of internationalisation within a particular function in a higher education institution – chosen by the student. This will enhance personal capacity in strategic analysis for informed decision-making in future professional practice. The programme, therefore, moves from context to strategy and from strategy to practice, so that reflection on practice is situated and contextualised.

The programme comprises four 30-credit modules and a 60-credit dissertation.

The modules currently offered are:

Module 1: Globalisation, higher education and society
Module 2: Internationalising higher education: institutional strategy and development
Module 3: Enhancing student experience in international higher education
Module 4: Shaping the future: An evidence-based approach to managing change in international higher education

The dissertation provides students with the opportunity to carry out an in-depth investigation of internationalisation within a particular function in a higher education institution. Development of the research skills students need to carry out this work are supported in various ways, building on their value for future professional practice.
