Master of Global Media Communication

1-2 years full-time, Parkville Campus - Domestic and International students.


Today’s media landscape is characterised by unprecedented transformation, not only in Australia, but in all world regions. Traditional media forms are becoming deeply challenged by new digital platforms. Media industries and public sector communications in today’s digital age are operating in an increasingly complex globalised context. Professionals equipped with new skill sets are needed to lead and manage these crucial transformations.

This dynamic Masters course not only provides you with key insights into the changing transnational contexts of media structures and communication practices, but also trains you in critical analysis, strategic thinking and audience research skills. You will also receive hands‐on training in media writing skills and audio‐visual production.
