Why study Master of Communications and Media Studies?

The Master of Communications and Media Studies aims to further students' understanding of communications and media systems both locally and globally, focusing on the challenges posed by the emergence of digital media, globalisation and increasing levels of cross-cultural exchange.

The last decade has been one of unprecedented change in communications and media content, forms, technology and policy, with wide-ranging implications for business, politics, public administration and everyday life. This course examines these developments from an historical, political and theoretical perspective.

The course is particularly relevant to those employed or seeking employment in communications and media industries, as well as those who wish to expand their expertise for teaching purposes or further study.
