MSc. in Media and Communication
Writing for the Media in a Changing World
The writing for the media stream provides graduates with advanced creative skills, and with specialized knowledge in writing and reporting that can be applied to any media or form of communication. Rather than specializing in only one narrow channel of communication (print, audiovisual, advertising or public relations), graduates will be able to apply their skills across the media. At the same time, through the elective course component, specialized interest areas are catered for. The emphasis of this stream is on creating content and core skill development. It is recognized that the quality of a media product (a film, a TV program, a news story, an advertisement, a web material) starts with the quality of its content. Communicating ideas, stories, and various media content in a creative and effective way is the focus of this stream.
