Overview Are you fascinated by the media industries? On this Master’s, you'll examine the worlds of film, literature and TV from the perspective of economics. You'll take modules covering economic concepts and econometrics, as well as specialist modules in the areas of media and communication. Through this work, you'll explore the economic and political contexts of global media and advance your analytical and numerical skills. You'll apply what you have learnt on the course by writing a dissertation, which will be supervised by a member of the School of Economics. You’ll graduate with the skills and edge required for a successful career in media – whether that’s as an account executive in advertising, a role in publishing, or in finance or management positions within broadcasting. About This Course MSc Global Media Economics is part of our Applied Training Programme, which is designed to provide key skills in economics. It’s ideal if you’re a graduate without an economics background, yet wish to develop the analytical skills of an economist. It's also suitable if you’re an economics graduate wishing to develop specialist expertise in this area without committing to full research training. You’ll gain a firm foundation in your subject through core compulsory taught modules in Economic Concepts, Econometrics, Economics of the Mass Media, Politics and Media, and International Trade. You'll then be able to tailor your course with an optional module and your dissertation, which you'll write towards the end of your 12 months with us. You will be able to choose your own dissertation topic from within the area of media economics, and you'll benefit from supervision and support from a member of the School of Economics. We offer specialised structural support to help you negotiate your masters course. This includes compulsory, intensive pre-sessional training before the start of teaching on your course modules. This training incorporates the techniques of calculus and matrix algebra and an introduction to the specialist econometric software that you'll use in your MSc programme.
