This course examines key issues of media and communication, introducing principles of cultural theories and media research methods, and Project management. For this course you must complete a series of units that address the central issues and concepts informing the study of the media in a cultural diverse environment as the nowadays society. The course offers units dealing with fundamental principles and topics of the subject area (e.g. Current research in mass communications; Media institutions, structure and policies; and Research Methods in the area of media); and a core unit focuses on international development. The course includes a final self-directed independent study project, in the form of a dissertation based on a research project. It is this project work that provides you with the opportunity to tailor the course to your own interests (subject to staff supervisory expertise).
Applicants should have an Honours degree or equivalent from a recognised higher education institute, or a postgraduate qualification such as a Postgraduate Certificate in Mass Communications or the equivalent.
