Program Description:

This course gives you an insight into questions such as: why are some parts of the world in constant turmoil while others remain largely peaceful? Can journalists help people to understand crucial issues of war and political unrest? How do the media gather information and what is the quality of their reporting? Is objective, unbiased reporting on international events possible, or do we have to accept that all news is political? Do the media have any impact on international politics? MA International Relations and the Media provides you with a comprehensive understanding of developments in international politics and the study of international relations, with a focus on the media in the modern world. It should particularly appeal if you have worked in the media or have an interest in the subject from another background.
