About

The MA Strategic Communication at Loughborough University is designed to provide you with an in-depth understanding of the uses, and abuses, of communication by a range of government, corporate and third sector organisations.

Overview

As part of the programme, you will explore some of the following questions:

  • How are governments, local, regional and national promoting their policies to stakeholders across the globe? What is the role of high-profile media events in this process?
