The School of Media, Communication, and Sociology at the University of Leicester
University welcomes applications to its interdisciplinary Master’s programme in Media, Gender, and Social Justice. The first of its kind in the UK, this one-year programme offers students the opportunity to critically examine and practically apply theories, concepts, and approaches related to the use of media and communication for addressing inequalities and engaging in social justice work.
This MA is offered by one of the UK’s leading centres for research and teaching in media, communication, and sociology. In addition to offering the expertise of over 50 members of staff in areas related to media, inclusion, politics, and development, we collaborate with colleagues in Criminology, Business, History, Politics, and International Relations to offer students a wide range of courses related to social justice and possibilities for supervision in these complementary subject areas.
The University of Leicester is ideally located in the East Midlands, a well-networked and exciting hub of social, artistic, and political activism. Leicester is widely-known as a welcoming, diverse city, and the University is a socially inclusive institution that celebrates research-led teaching.
Students must have a 2:1 degree or equivalent professional qualification. We may consider relevant voluntary/work experience in grassroots, public, private or NGO sectors related to social justice internationally.
