We provide up to date engagement with key issues, theories and problems in media, democracy and cultural citizenship, media power, media industries and production, gender, health and society, representation and popular culture, media audiences, cultural diversity and critical animal studies. Courses tackle contemporary debates about knowledge, power and social relations in national and transnational media environments.
Our teaching is based on international expertise in a research led department, with an emphasis on theorising and researching media, society and culture using real world case studies. In the Media and Communication Studies programme from Lund University, students are taught diverse theoretical, conceptual and empirical tools for research in media and communication, through a mix of mandatory and optional courses, and independent research projects. Courses are taught in Lund and connect with collaborative partnerships with NGOs and cultural organisations in the region.
Students graduating from this programme will be prepared for professional opportunities in research led careers, education, academic careers, media and cultural industries, national and international policy and production sectors, commercial and public service organisations, and NGOs. Above all, graduates will have the critical skills necessary to evaluate and understand media in a range of professional and private spheres.
