School of Arts and Communication, University Malmö The field of media is constantly shifting. In the last decade the changes have been rapid, and a new media landscape has emerged, reshaping not only consumers but also creators and distributors of media. Today's digital media is characterised by participation and cooperation; media are wholly collaborative in terms of both production and consumption, and this is what is meant by the term ‘collaborative media’.
What will I learn?
The two-year master’s programme in Media and Communication Studies: Culture, Collaborative Media, and Creativel Industries will equip you with advanced knowledge of digital media. The programme is oriented towards practical approaches to the field. You will work creatively and in an explorative way with different types of media while you learn to approach them from a critical perspective.
During the programme, you will develop three primary skill sets: the ability to analyse and strategically approach media and its impact on society; the capability to work with media and communication both methodologically and systematically; and the knowledge required to produce media texts, both individually and collaboratively. Compared to bachelor's level degrees, this advanced programme has a clear focus on the development of strategic expertise, a skill crucial for those intending to pursue a professional career in media and communication. During the education, you will furthermore obtain an in-depth knowledge of the workings of the creative industries.
