Courses tackle contemporary debates about knowledge, power and social relations in national and transnational media environments. 

Our teaching is based on international expertise in a high-ranking, research-led department (top 100, QS World University Rankings by subject 2021). We emphasise theorising and researching media, society and culture using real world case studies that are tailor made for our students who are taught diverse theoretical, conceptual and empirical tools for research through a mix of courses and independent research projects. Courses are taught in Lund and connect with collaborative partnerships with NGOs and cultural organisations in the region. 

Students on our programme come from a diverse range of backgrounds and professional experiences, including media and cultural industries, NGOs and charity sectors, and develop critical understanding of media and communication during two years of cross-cultural meetings and exchange of ideas. Students participate in a lively research environment, where we run regular international conferences, seminars and events, on topics such as media freedom, and our postgraduate students organise and participate in an annual symposium and book series MSc Excellent Dissertations. Our community of international students and alumni help prepare you for further research and professional life, and our graduates go on to work in the media and communications field and pursue research track careers in public and commercial spheres.
