The Media and Development MA is an interdisciplinary course that teaches main theories, concepts, case studies and practical media skills around the theme of media and development and its implications for less developed countries.

It will critically evaluate the impact of international and regional institutions from a critical political economic perspective. Teaching by academic staff and guest lecturers and carefully selected staff from development organisations will provide you with an overview of the policies, actions and impact of state and non-state institutions within the area of communication media and development.
A distinctive feature is its emphasis on the practical role of communication media in development. You will participate in media production workshops and take part in our managed internship programme, offered in partnership with media and development organisations in London.
