Overview

Today's media landscape is characterised by unprecedented transformation, not only in Australia, but in all world regions. Traditional media forms are becoming deeply challenged by new digital platforms. Media industries and public sector communications in today's digital age are operating in an increasingly complex globalised context. Professionals equipped with new skill sets are needed to lead and manage these crucial transformations.

This dynamic Masters course provides you with key insights into the changing transnational contexts of media structures and communication practices and trains you in critical analysis, strategic thinking and audience research skills. You also receive hands‐on training in media writing skills and audio‐visual production.

Who is it for?

The Master of Global Media Communication is designed for those with an awareness of crucial areas of the changes in transnational media communication, and who have a keen interest in learning how to debate and explore these alternative practices. Build on and recreate your approach to contemporary writing and media production in journalism, broadcasting, digital media and professional communications.

You can also enrich your experience and career outcomes with an optional overseas exchange semester at a leading international university such as McGill University (Montreal), Humboldt University (Berlin) or Fudan University (Shanghai).
