Communication, Media, Social and Policy Studies

Postgraduate taught


Our courses are designed to enable students to become critical media analysts with a wide range of transferable skills relevant to careers in media and creative industries. We emphasize hands-on media analysis and research methods training as well as theoretical explorations of the media and cultural industries.

We offer a bespoke package of study skills support for our students. This is run through the dissertation module in the first term. It supports students in using and interpreting academic literature, referencing, critical thinking and developing their own writing style.

We run a personal tutor system so that all students have a dedicated member of staff with whom they meet regularly to discuss their progress and academic development. Personal tutors also have a pastoral role so students have a member of staff to turn to if they have any personal difficulties during their time at Loughborough.
