Master of Mass Communication – WKWSCI
Our graduate studies by coursework programmes are designed for professionals in leadership positions across a wide range of industries and settings, including mass media, communications, information systems, business management, libraries, and the public sector.
The communication-related programmes train students to confront contemporary issues in media theory, research, policy, planning and management and to develop effective communications strategies and familiarize themselves with the complete range of current communications tools and how to use them in an integrated, strategic way.
The information-related programmes teach students to explore and analyse information needs within the organisational and social context, and utilise appropriate and effective strategies to address these needs.
