Media & International Conflict

GradDip Media & International Conflict

Graduate Taught (level 9 nfq, credits 60)

Vision and Values Statement

This is an academic programme but is also suited to practitioners/professionals in a related field who wish to gain a broader understanding of the cultural and political dimensions of media responses to international conflicts. We value and therefore encourage our students to be active, motivated, autonomous learners who have a critical and reflective approach to the subject. We aim to provide a learning environment that will encourage students to think critically about the ways in which media interact today with war, conflict, and security in international contexts, both individually and as part of a group. As a result of this approach to learning, the programme uses teaching, learning, and assessment approaches such as seminar discussions, short and longer writing assignements, one-on-one advising, small group activities, presentations, internships, and engagement with practitioners.
