This Masters degree will prepare you for a successful career in the fields of corporate communications or public relations. You will explore the drivers and dynamics of the corporate communications industry, covering the key elements of modern corporate communications.
You will be taught by specialists in relevant fields, who combine their professional experience with the latest research expertise. Your programme of study will cover essential areas such as stakeholder management, brand management, corporate identity, crisis management, media relations, social media and internal communications.
In addition to gaining understanding of important theories and concepts, our MA Corporate Communications and Public Relations focuses on the professional skills you need to work in the communications industry.
You will benefit from our business connections, as senior figures working in corporate communications and public relations regularly visit to offer a practitioner’s view during guest lectures. Many also provide case studies and practical projects.
Graduates have a rounded and reflective approach to communications strategy and practice. Many become successful communications professionals, either in internal corporate and marketing roles or in PR, digital and social media agencies.
