Media, Campaigning and Social Change (Taught) University of Westminster, London

Postgraduate

This course aims to equip students with the skills, knowledge and strategic approach to develop and analyse social change campaigns, with a particular focus on the role of communications and the media. This innovative course builds on our close links with leading campaigners and communicators in London's vibrant social change sector. This will ensure it accurately reflects the skill sets in demand and delivers an exciting learning experience. A limited number of work placements and internships will be available. The course is aimed at those with some experience or interest in social change, the media, and communications or campaigns within not for profit organisations. The course will help you improve your practical skills, develop a deep understanding of the theories and frameworks that underpin and shape campaign communications, and enjoy the space to reflect critically on current and past practice. It is designed to help you start, or progress, a career in charity, pressure group or public sector campaign communications. It may also be of interest to those working in corporate social responsibility. The course team has extensive experience both in developing social change campaigns and in academic research into the connections between media and social change.
