For September 2020 entry: In order to take advantage of new approaches to learning and teaching, as well as developments in industry to benefit our students we regularly review all of our courses.
This course is currently going through this process and we will update this page in January to give you full information about what we will be offering once the review process has concluded.
This course is designed to provide an advanced understanding of the issues and debates surrounding political communication in the 21st century.
The units are conceptually led, combining discussions of theory with an exploration of current and best practice in society. All units will offer an international perspective and provide insights into the latest developments in political communication research and practice and the impact of recent technological innovations.
Our academic team have wide-ranging expertise, grounded in years of research within fields such as political psychology, voter behaviour, international relations and political campaigning. The team have cultivated links with research institutions and universities across the globe, from Massachusetts and Prague to Bogota and Auckland.
The team also enjoys extensive connections with a range of political organisations, including the UK House of Lords, the European Parliament, the Thai Chamber of Commerce, and local, national and international pressure groups, charities and communication consultancies.
Please watch the recorded BU webinar ‘MA International Political Communication’. Presented by Darren Lilleker, Associate Professor in Political Communication, this webinar will give you an excellent insight into the MA International Political Communication Master’s degree offered at BU.
