MA in Global Media and Communication

Course Director : Dr Pietari Kaapa

Explore global communication...

Global media means communication, culture, politics and power, marketing and technology. We take an interdisciplinary and critical approach to this growing field, understanding how creativity, media and communication is produced and consumed, seeing how it is implicated in political and social change and how media businesses are shaping our world.

Learn how to communicate...

The focus of this course is on developing the tools for effective communication. You will have the opportunity to explore how global media products and content communicate creatively and effectively across markets, cultural borders and between users. You will also develop your own communication skills by assessing the creative content of a whole range of mixed-media products and technologies.

Expand your media imagination...

As a member of an international student group you will collaborate in cross-cultural teams to develop ideas, manage projects, and turn ideas into professional proposals. Case studies, creative thinking and collaborative work form an important part of the programme, enabling you to understand how media communication is bound up with individual experience, social and cultural contexts and corporate strategies.

Improve your critical thinking skills...

Theory goes hand in hand with application on this course. It will equip you with the critical thinking skills required to work across the range of media sectors. We will introduce you to the rich tradition of theoretical approaches to global media and communications. You will develop your ability to critically analyze complex media practice (images, narratives, product messages, industries), and the relevant skills to interpret and develop media messages across cultures, nations and markets.
