About Journalism, Media and Communications, MA - at Cardiff University

This course provides insight into how journalism and the media is changing in a globalised context – from journalism ethics to internet governance, from community media to global communications and from crisis reporting to the transformative potential of new technologies.

MA Journalism, Media and Communications will help you to develop an in-depth understanding of how media work across a variety of social, cultural, economic and political contexts.

It focuses on the academic study of journalism, but also offer opportunities for the development of professional skills through optional modules in the second semester and through research.
