  • the relationship between the mass media, politics and society 
  • the role and function of the media in democratic societies (and how these are affected by market considerations and technological advancements) 
  • the impact of mass media on global political processes 
  • research methods used in media and communication research. 
You will develop skills that directly enhance employability, including applying critical reviewing skills, giving presentations, plus data analysis, problem-solving, team-working and research design and implementation. 
You'll able to pursue your own specific research/study interest in political communication via a 12,000-15,000 word dissertation and by choosing three further modules from a range of other M-level modules provided by the department or wider school.
