Communication and Media Studies

Why Study Communication and Media Studies?

Communication is at the heart of being human. Without it, we cannot connect with others and have lasting relationships. Communication is also central to effective collaboration in the workplace. It is needed to convey and understand instructions, to solve conflict (even if most conflict is caused by poor communication!) and to exchange important messages between the organisation and its stakeholders. At IIE MSA, we also explore how the cyber cultures of the 21st century mass media influence the way we live and work.

To study Communication and Media Studies you can enrol for the IIE Bachelor of Social Science degree with a major in Communication and Media Studies, offered at IIE MSA. If direct access to this degree is not possible, you can explore entry through the Social Science stream of our Foundation Programme.

Following completion of your three-year Bachelor’s degree, you can articulate into the IIE Bachelor of Social Science (Honours), and subsequently, a research IIE Master of Philosophy, both with specialisation in Communication and Media Studies.

Double Majors

To amplify your studies and shape your career of the future, choose to double major at no additional cost when studying the IIE Bachelor of Social Science. Pair your Communication and Media Studies major with Journalism or International Studies, or a non-Social Science major such as Management or Marketing.
