When urgent questions are being asked, after controversies such as the Edward Snowden revelations, about government’s influence on the internet and the power of media corporations, the content of this programme has never been more relevant.
The Media and Communications (Media and Communication Governance) programme from London School of Economics and Political Science offers a broad-based understanding of the institutions and regulations that structure the development of media and communication systems, and covers policy, legal and economic aspects of media and communication services. It provides an up-to-date engagement with the latest developments in research on media and communications, specifically relating to communications governance at regional, national and international levels. It has a strong focus on international comparison, including at the European level, with opportunities to take courses in the Departments of Media and Communications, Government and Law.
In addition, you will have the opportunity to take full advantage of London’s status as the leading global media industry city.
On graduating, our students enter a variety of careers in the UK and abroad, including broadcasting, journalism, advertising, new media industries, political marketing, market research, regulation and policy, media management and research in both the public and private sectors.
