The Global Media and Digital Cultures (online) course from SOAS University of London prepares students for jobs in the media and communication sectors, government agencies, non-governmental organisations, UN bodies and international organisations.
Taught by leading scholars and drawing on SOAS expertise in the Global South, this MA programme provides students with a non-Eurocentric approach to addressing some of the key debates in contemporary lives – populism, hate speech, fake news, access and representation, inequalities (with a specific focus on gender and minorities) and transnational communities and diasporas. The course will expose students to the main discussions around the role and impact of global media players, including the tech companies on digital economies and futures.
Graduates from the Centre for Global Media and Communications gain expertise in media, communications and film production within a global framework.
