Are you fascinated by the media industries? On this Master’s you will examine the worlds of film, literature and TV from the perspective of economics.
On this Master’s you will take modules covering economic concepts and econometrics, as well as specialist modules in the areas of media and communication. Through this work, you will explore the economic and political contexts of global media and advance your analytical and numerical skills. You will apply what you have learnt on the course by writing a dissertation, which will be supervised by a member of the School of Economics.
