You will consider major traditions, theories and frameworks of inquiry relevant to the analysis of global communications and development.
Through a series of insightful lectures and seminars, you will investigate the social, economic, political and historical character of global communications and development and learn new communication infrastructures, tools and media practices.
The Global Communication and Social Change programme at Loughborough University will develop your critical understanding of how the media and creative industries work, along with insights into broader economic, social, and political issues. For example, you will reflect on the impact of the digital age and information capitalism on the Global South, which incorporates communities across Africa, Asia and Latin America.
You will learn from a passionate faculty of leading professionals and academics, offering a vibrant insight into the media and creative industries, through the sharing of specialised knowledge in information science, law, anthropology, political economy, political and social theory, ethnic studies and more.
Graduates from our Global Communication and Development programme are highly-qualified to work in a variety of communication and development roles across a range of sectors, including tourism, the media and the government.
Teaching of global communication trends means graduates of this programme will be well placed to influence communications and practices in roles across the world, especially in the Global South.
Graduates will also have the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and career prospects further by undertaking a PhD programme in media or a creative discipline.
