The Master of Global Media Communication (MGMC) equips graduates to work in media and communication sectors as well as across a broad range of professional domains, including government, corporate and NGO sectors, in which communication skills and knowledge of media platforms and strategies provide a key competitive advantage.
In the contemporary globalised world, knowledge of the changing landscape of media industries, production pathways, and a critical understanding of social and economic transformations are vital professional attributes.
Students undertaking the course will acquire a deep and critically informed understanding of how media industries, policies, technologies and formats are implicated in contemporary social and economic life. They have the opportunity to build knowledge relating to key areas, such as journalism, public relations and communications advocacy, and skills in audiovisual media production and media writing.
Students can opt to do an industry internship as part of their masters degree. MGMC students also have the opportunity to undertake a research thesis that can provide a pathway to PhD study.
