 What is International Communications?

International Communications degrees explore the complex world of communications, media and culture through study of the different forms of visual and linguistic communication, new technologies, politics, popular and high culture, and news media. These courses train students in theories of digital media and mass communication, combined with strong emphasis on language proficiency.

During their time with us students investigate the places and roles of various media and communication practices in everyday life, both as industries and cultural practices. Various courses encourage students to analyse film, television and other screen and mobile media within contexts of production, exhibition and reception. Students on the course also gain expertise in social and cultural context, textual analysis and empirical research.
