Media Practice for Development and Social Change
The programme is especially concerned with understanding media as a tool for social change and equipping students with technical expertise and analytical perspectives that will enable them to actively engage in social concerns and advocate for social change. The programme focuses on relating media practice to social activism, collaborative action and participatory development strategies. With the increasing mediatisation of societies, the media is increasingly associated with democratisation, demonstration, and social justice, changing the role of media technologies in political life. These changes can be understood in terms of global scales of analysis (e.g. in respect of new information highways and media flows) and also in terms of influence on peoples' intimate lives, for example in respect of changing understandings of gender, sexuality and social inequality. The course culminates in a professional placement, an independent media project engaging with real-world issues, or a written dissertation.
