The Master of Media and Communications (MMC) program at the University of Wollongong in Dubai offers you the opportunity to develop advanced level skills in a range of disciplines, including journalism, media studies and public relations. If you are an existing or aspiring professional in the media and communications sector, the MMC will provide you with the theoretical knowledge and applied skills to advance in your chosen field of practice.
The Master of Media and Communications will give you a strong foundation in the practical skills required to succeed in this dynamic business sector. The program immerses you in a multi-disciplinary environment, promoting collaborative working and team leadership, as well as independent learning.
The direction in media and communications in the 21st century has been toward working alone as well as in teams on projects of all sizes. Today’s journalist often functions as a one-person operation responsible for writing, recording audio and video, editing, and producing material for various platforms. The same skills are required in public relations and higher level versions of these skills figure in feature films and documentaries.
This program will equip students to work in these ways and also to function effectively in teams, as team member or team leader, both of which roles are often required by clients in the industry today. You will have the opportunity to specialise in Media Studies or Public Relations, by selecting the relevant electives, and will then complete an Internship, Practicum, Thesis, or Professional Portfolio to demonstrate industry-related competencies.
