The MSc in Political Communication offers you a thorough and engaging academic analysis of political communication.
It enables you to develop an in-depth understanding of how political actors, the media and the public interact in different countries during both elections and day-to-day politics, and how these relationships affect the distribution of power and the nature of democratic politics.
Career opportunities include positions in public relations and communications in government agencies, political parties, charities and international organisations; politics and political consultancy; political journalism; media policy-making; and higher education, including doctoral studies.
You will study three core courses: two courses in political communication and one in methodology; as well as three optional courses chosen from a range in politics and other selected courses offered at the University.
You will also write a dissertation on a political communication topic of your choice, under the guidance of personal supervision by a specialist member of staff.
You will attend lectures, seminars and tutorials and take part in project work and case studies.
You may also choose, with the programme convener's approval, from courses in the other subject areas in the School of Social & Political Sciences. Some courses might not be available every year.
The minimum entry requirements are an honours degree at the 2.1/upper second class level or higher or equivalent (e.g. B/3.0 GPA in the undergraduate degree) in politics, law or related social science subject.
We will consider applications from graduates from other fields, but the applicant should submit a statement indicating why they are interested in changing fields or the connection to their previous study. We will also take relevant work experience into account.
International students with academic qualifications below those required should contact our partner institution, Glasgow International College, who offer a range of pre-Masters courses.
