Msc Media and Communication International Programme 2019 application information

Programme overview

The focus of this international Master’s programme is to offer a critical approach to contemporary social and cultural issues in media and communications. Our aim is to broaden understanding of global media structures and processes in modern life. We provide up to date engagement with key issues, theories and problems in media, democracy and cultural citizenship, media power, media industries and production, gender, health and society, representation and popular culture, media audiences, cultural diversity and critical animal studies. Courses tackle contemporary debates about knowledge, power and social relations in national and transnational media environments.

 

Our teaching is based on international expertise in a research led department, with an emphasis on theorising and researching media, society and culture using real world case studies. Students are taught diverse theoretical, conceptual and empirical tools for research in media and communication, through a mix of mandatory and optional courses, and independent research projects. Courses are taught in Lund and connect with collaborative partnerships with NGOs and cultural organisations in the region.

 

Students on our programme come from a diverse range of backgrounds and professional experience, including media and cultural industries, NGOs and charity sectors, who develop critical understanding of media and communication during two years of cross-cultural meetings and exchange of ideas. Students participate in a lively research environment, where we run regular international conferences, seminars and events, on topics such as media freedom, and our postgraduate students organise and participate in an annual symposium and book series MSc Excellent Dissertations. Our alumni go on to work in the media and communications field, and pursue research track careers in public and commercial spheres.
