Master International Political Communication (Full-time, Part-time) - Máster en Comunicación Política Internacional
This degree provides a theoretical and practical understanding of global communication as a cultural process. During the course, you will discover how cultural meanings are carried within every message and what their effects are at an international level – how they are mediated, interpreted and translated.
You will gain the skills required to critically explore messages and their meanings in a globalised world. You will also learn how to translate and interpret the delivery of these messages to international audiences and markets, and develop the ability to negotiate and promote intended meaning. You will develop strong intercultural communication skills alongside theoretical and practice-based understanding of the dynamics of intercultural interactions, transnational media in an ever-globalising world.
The course includes four core modules where you will explore the global studies of communication and culture and develop skills in relevant research methods, as well as textual and image analysis. The option modules will allow you to specialise in areas such as negotiation and business strategies, documentary film-making, world literature, global media events and Latin-America cinema.
We live in a world connected by complex means of communication across cultures and transnational media, and this MA responds directly to the global demand of employers, which will prepare you for a host of opportunities in the workplace. This degree is ideal if you have studied culture or communication and wish to gain a more practical element to your knowledge with a focus on international markets, or if you work in the industry and would like to get a more thorough understanding of transcultural communication, which is directly linked to your own professional experience.
