The MSc Double degree in Global Media and Communications is a unique programme and offers the opportunity to study and gather experience in two cities (London and Los Angeles, Shanghai or Cape Town) with close connections and ties to global media industries. Few LSE Master’s Awards (LMA’s) are earmarked for African offer holders on the MSc double degree in Global Media and Communications (LSE and University of Cape Town).

Successful students will attend 2 top ranking educational institutions, the London School of Economics (LSE) in London in your first year, and the  University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles, Fudan University in Shanghai or the University of Cape Town (UCT) in South Africa. In our ever increasing globalised world, international experience gained on one of our Global programmes is invaluable and gives students a great knowledge and experience base to work from.
