In the last decade, the changes have been rapid, and a new media landscape has emerged — forever reshaping not only consumers but also creators and distributors of media. Today's digital media are characterized by participation and cooperation; media are wholly collaborative in terms of both production and consumption, and this is what is meant by the term ‘collaborative media.

The one-year master's program in Media and Communication Studies gives you advanced knowledge of digital media through practical approaches in the field. You will work creatively and in an explorative manner with different types of media while learning to evaluate them from a critical perspective.

Program content

The first semester focuses on examining key themes in communication studies and on how today's creative industries operate. During the second semester, you will learn more about the possibilities of collaborative media. The year ends with a (one-year, 15 credits) master's thesis.

During the program, you will have opportunities to network with and explore employment opportunities with representatives from different professions and organizations within and outside of academia.

Employment opportunities, open for graduates who wish to continue in academia, primarily include advancing in their teaching careers or moving into managerial positions, such as Director of Studies, Head of Department, Deputy Vice-Chancellor or Dean. However, a master’s degree in teaching and learning for higher education also opens up employment in other public and private organizations focussed on adult pedagogical development.

The program also allows you to pursue doctoral studies in research fields related to learning and personal development in higher education, such as didactics, pedagogy and pedagogical practice. The program is offered by the Malmö University Centre for Teaching and Learning at the Faculty of Learning and Society but is taught by researchers from several different departments and faculties. Examples of ongoing research areas within this field are challenge-based learning, learning environments, academic literacy, academic professional development, teacher and supervisor roles in higher education, and inclusive pedagogy.

Qualification

Master of Science (MSc) in Media and Communication Studies
