Applications are now open for a unique two-year programme which enables students to study for one year at LSE in London, the UK’s media capital, and one year at the University of Cape Town (UCT) – the top-ranked university on the African continent with close links to Cape Town’s media and film industry and NGO sector.

The MSc/MA Double Degree in Global Media and Communications (LSE and the University of Cape Town) aims to provide:

  • critical exploration of mediation in the global context, examining processes of globalisation in relation to organisation, production, consumption and representation in media and communications;
  • the opportunity to study a range of courses, flexibly tailoring the programme to develop specialist interests, culminating in an independent research project on a topic in global media and communications at LSE and a further dissertation or creative media production at UCT;
  • preparation for high-level employment in media and communications related professions anywhere in the world;
  • the opportunity to carry out an internship in Cape Town.

Students on this degree will be trained to examine the intersection of media and globalisation from an African vantage point. They will gain an understanding of global media and communications in an African context and African media and communications in a global context.
