The School is home to internationally renowned scholars in this important and burgeoning field.
The MA in Journalism, Media and Communications is the longest established of Cardiff’s MA programmes. It allows students to explore the pressing issues of our media environment – from journalism ethics to internet governance, from community media to global communications, and from crisis reporting to the transformative potential of new technologies.
The programme has an international approach and attracts students from around the globe.
The MA draws on the strength and diversity of Cardiff’s staff, giving students a unique opportunity to work with academics whose research is at the cutting edge of exploring how media are changing in a dynamic global communications environment characterised by technological, political, social, economic and cultural upheaval.
The programme also equips students with research skills in areas such as content analysis, interviews, surveys, and digital methods, and it allows them to develop their own scholarship. It does not provide practical training in journalism or a professional qualification towards becoming a journalist. Students interested in professional training should consider one of Cardiff’s other degrees.
Students should apply for their course using the Online Application Service.
