Summary

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.

The International Communications and Development MA provides will provide you with skills to help you to:

  • Gain an overview of the main issues in the field on International Communications and Development.

  • Develop a broad interdisciplinary overview of developments in broadcasting, telecommunications, the press and information technology.

  • Conduct detailed analysis of sectors or issues of your own choice, drawing on economics, political science, international relations, development theory, sociology and law.

  • Analyse the main directions of media and communication issues in Britain, the USA, the EU, and countries of your own interest.

  • Develop the ability to participate in policy making and evaluation in the context of changing national and global geopolitics and economic relations.

  • Gain the relevant skills for employment in government information departments, communications regulatory agencies, mass media organisations, public relations, advertising, academic and professional research.
