Master's degrees

Communication and Media at Loughborough University has long had a large, thriving, and distinctive Master's programme that builds on our research expertise. We offer three carefully-designed postgraduate taught degrees that reflect our key research strengths: Media and Communication, Strategic Communication, and the ESRC-accredited Social Science Research.

Our MA courses are delivered by an internationally-renowned team of scholars, through the use of contemporary case studies and research-informed applied teaching and learning.

These courses provide advanced training in media analysis, communication, digital culture, political communication, and media theory, as well as quantitative, qualitative, and digital methods. They attract students from across the globe.

We empower current and future communication and media professionals—researchers, analysts, entrepreneurs, and advocacy campaigners—to make a difference in the world.
