School:University of East Anglia

Field of Study:Communication Studies/Speech Communication and Rhetoric
Development Economics and International Development
Description:Immerse yourself in the world of media, communication and international development. How do charities and other development organisations communicate about famine, poverty and developing countries, and what effect does this have on public attitudes? Why do only some humanitarian crises make it on to our TV screens and what effect does this have on government policy? How important is press freedom and freedom of speech in promoting democracy and economic growth? What is the impact of social media in developing countries – do Facebook and Twitter facilitate citizens’ engagement with politics or do they undermine genuine political participation? These are just some of the key questions and problems that you will explore as you study both media and international development, and study the relationship between them.

The media are important to all aspects of international development, from promoting mass mobilisation and political participation to facilitating the flow of information locally, nationally and internationally. Media is also central to encouraging charitable donations, promoting democracy and human rights, and in delivering public health messages during emergencies. The degree has been designed to meet the growing demand for people in the media with an international outlook, and people in international development who understand how the media works. You will graduate particularly well prepared for careers in NGO communications, development journalism, humanitarian communication and media development.
