Our Global Communication and Social Change MA is designed for people wishing to develop professional skills and a critical understanding of the role of media and communication in facilitating processes of social change. Growing wealth and environmental inequalities, coupled with new media disruptions have prompted fresh thinking about processes of social and political change. This Global Communication and Social Change master’s programme explores contemporary approaches to communication for social change in global and local contexts, including citizen engagement, collective action, edutainment, community media, entrepreneurial changemaking, media development, and social movements. You will be encouraged to question:
- What kinds of communications revolutions are we witnessing?
- What kind of social change processes are we experiencing?
- What are the conceptual tools we need in order to understand such transformations and dynamics?
