The Global Media MA offers a unique perspective on recent developments in contemporary culture. From the use of social networking in ‘the Arab spring’ to the financial crisis facing the Western hemisphere, the process of globalisation has entered a new era. The decisions taken in boardrooms and government departments have found a counterpoint in the voices raised in public spaces, both physical and digital.
The MA examines this phenomenon, providing students with the intellectual, research and practical skills to make sense of this turn of events, allowing the exercise of an essential critical perspective that is of great use in the spheres of professional and academic life. This course brings together members of De Montfort University’s dedicated Media Discourse Group, current practitioners in the world of digital media, and experts from industry. You will be encouraged to identify your own research strengths and to reinforce the taught elements of the course through the composition of a critical study of global media forms; all dissertation work will be supervised by tutors who have a particular expertise in the designated field.
