You may be wondering why a school of economics is the best place for a degree in media and communication. Well, London School of Economics (LSE) officially known as London School of Economics and Political Science, offers courses in several disciplines apart from economics and one of such courses is media and communications. The QS World University Rankings by Subject 2018 includes the ranking of the best universities for studying media and communications (what some countries still refer to as mass communication) and London School of Economics (LSE), is the number one in the UK to study this course.
The institution’s teaching in this field is focused at postgraduate level, with options including an MSc in Media and Communications, MSc/MA in Global Media and Communications, MSc in Media, Communication and Development, and MSc in Politics and Communication.
The courses are highly research-based, and LSE prides itself on being one of the leading research universities in the UK. The Department of Media and Communications says it strives to achieve a deeper understanding of “changes in the media and communication environment as these shape, and are shaped by, complex socio-technical, political-economic, cultural and historical developments.”
