Course summary

From Al Jazeera to Hollywood, from Disney to China Central TV, Amazon, Alphabet/Google, Netflix, Alibaba and Tencent, the media increasingly operate in a global context. This course offers a comprehensive interdisciplinary approach to global media, and is designed for those who work in, or want to work in, the media industries. You'll examine key developments in the media and communications industries associated with the logic of globalisation, and explore the complex nature of the globalisation process in the media.

Based on continuous assessment, the course is taught in lectures and seminars by the team from Westminster's top-rated Communication and Media Research Institute (CAMRI).
