About

The MA in International Communications Studies at University of Nottingham Ningbo China provides an opportunity not only to study communications against the background of recent theoretical and methodological developments, but also to gain an insight into the skills and knowledge required by the contemporary media and communication industries.

Overview

It is a commonplace that communication is at the core of crucial aspects of human life, and that a lot of that communication is mediated. In recent years, however, mediated communication has reached new levels of importance in social and cultural domains stretching from business to identity formation, and a lot of that communication is technically and financially underpinned by global networks of computation and communication. 

The academic fields of media, communication and cultural studies have responded by re-examining long-established frameworks for understanding communications and also by considering the need for new paradigms fitting new objects of study.

The aims of the MA in International Communications Studies at University of Nottingham Ningbo China are to enable students to:

  • Enhance their knowledge and understanding of the theoretical bases of verbal and non-verbal communication
  • Enhance their knowledge and understanding of the cultural, social, political and economic bases of communications internationally
  • Acquire a high level of proficiency in an East-Asian language or in one European language other than English
  • Develop their intellectual skills
  • Make use of some of the specialised forms of knowledge in the disciplines represented on the degree
  • Practice and develop a wide range of transferable skills that will prepare students for further study and for employment
