This exciting and challenging programme offers an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the media within a global framework.
Global Media at UEL
The global media is a crucial component in the formation of the new world order, where contemporary geo-political events are increasingly integrated into the ideologies and discourses of a trans-national media culture. The programme critically examines a wide range of media including television, cinema, print, the internet and new digital media technologies.
Students taking the Global Media programme will do the foundation module, two options, a Research Methods module and a Dissertation module. Students are invited to select, by negotiation, one option per semester.
Dissertations are submitted at the end of September.
Full-time students take five modules over a single year; part-time students complete five modules over two year.
The programme offers a variety of learning and teaching approaches. Lectures, seminars and presentations are employed; and depending on options selected, practice-based work, externals visits and field trips are offered.
Programme assessment is normally by essays, seminar presentation, research projects, media practice and a dissertation, which may include a production component. There are no exams.
Relevance to work/profession
Students may, by negotiation, select a work placement option based in London with a media organisation.
Students have considerable opportunities to purse project work on the MA Global Media programme through essay work and in particular, the dissertation module. It will enable them to pursue specific topics of interest and gain in-depth knowledge and research specialism.
Applicants will normally have a first or upper second class degree or equivalent, or comparable professional or research experience. Applications from overseas and EU students are welcome. Students whose first language is not English should normally have achieved a score of 7.0 in IELTS or equivalent. Eligibility for students without degree-equivalent qualifications will be assessed on the basis of a short essay and statement. Places will be offered after a successful interview with a member of the programme team.
