Today’s media landscape is characterised by unprecedented transformation, not only in Australia, but in all world regions.

This dynamic Masters course not only provides you with key insights into the changing transnational contexts of media structures and communication practices, but also trains you in critical analysis, strategic thinking and audience research skills.
