Recent events such as Kony 2012 and the Arab Spring help to illustrate how important the media are to all aspects of international development, from promoting mass mobilisation and participation to facilitating the flow of information locally, nationally and internationally. The media is also central to encouraging charitable donations, promoting democracy and human rights, and in delivering public health messages during emergencies.
This new and innovative degree programme will allow you to study both media and international development and the relationship between them, making this degree programme unique within the UK. It meets the growing demand for those working in the media to have an international outlook and for those working in international development to understand how the media works. Core areas of the course address foreign media coverage, communication for development work and the development of the media in the Global South.
