MA Media, Communications and Critical Practice integrates the study of media theory with creative and professional practice. You will be encouraged to think critically about the role of media in the digital age, exploring problems and challenges through your engagement with key theories of media, culture and communication alongside a range of creative media practices. You will gain a sound understanding of key theories of media and communications and apply your knowledge and critical perspective to a wide range of case studies. You will investigate how global media production, circulation and consumption relate to issues of diversity, equality and identity, as well as to environmental and ethical challenges. You will be encouraged to express your ideas and solve problems through a range of creative media practices. Working with images, texts and data, you will learn how to produce different types of media content for different purposes, and explore the social and cultural impacts of your interventions. This course is taught at London College of Communication, at Elephant and Castle, part of University of the Arts London (UAL).
