The application process for the Masters course in ‘Diversity and the Media’ 2013-2014 is now open.

To apply for this highly innovative new course, follow the link for the Postgraduate Students at University of Westminster.

The highly innovative course developed by the Media Diversity Institute and the University of Westminster will give students an opportunity to analyse the role of the media in social construction and get a critical understanding of journalistic practices that impact upon these processes.

 

 

The course combines a portfolio of theory-based modules aimed at developing critical understanding of the processes of managing - and making sense of - cultural diversity with a number of practice-oriented modules intended to give students first-hand experience in the practice of inclusive journalism.

 

Some of the modules taught at the course are: Approaches to Social and Cultural Diversity, Sex, Violence and Politics, Reporting Diversity: Sexuality, Age, Disability, Reporting Diversity: Migration, Race, Ethnicity etc.

 

Drawing upon this unique combination, this course is designed to equip students with the skills to engage in responsible media coverage of diversity, to practice culturally informed and inclusive journalism and to develop a career (whether practical, strategic, or research-based) involving understanding and responding to the challenges of social diversity.

A limited number of scholarships are available. For more information on how to find a scholarship for MA Diversity and the Media, please click here
