  • Objectives
    To provide students with a comprehensive grounding in theories, perspectives and research related to Globalization and Communications. Core focus includes major political, economic and cultural developments in contemporary history and their impact on national and transnational media structures and mediated cultural flows. The role of technology in shaping societies, linking transnational communities and the changing dynamics of boundaries between them, will be examined, along with the influence of information and communication technologies in bringing together computing and communications capacities to shape the ‘knowledge society’. Training in the use of appropriate research methods and approaches incorporates web-based skills.
  • Entry requirements
    Entry requirements At least a good second class honours degree in any discipline, though a Social Science degree would be particularly relevant, from an institution recognised by the University.
