Society, Communication and Media

Two-year English-language M.A. programme Society, Communication and Media (SCM) is designed for international students interested in gaining in-depth knowledge of the state of the present-day field of sociology including its theory and research methods. The curriculum offers foreign as well as Czech students up-to-date and relevant expertise in a prospective and rapidly evolving field of mass media and sociology. It is taught by members of the Institute of Sociological Studies (ISS FSV UK) and The Institute of Communication Studies and Journalism (ICSJ FSV UK).

The programme focuses on the study of society and its representation in the sphere of the media. It develops the methodological and analytical skills of students in a wide range of modern applications in sociology and media studies. The curriculum is oriented on sociological and media theory and at the same time on knowledge and skills in the field of empirical research methodology. Besides introducing general theoretical questions of the field and methodology of sociological research, the study will provide a deeper insight into the basic analytical methods of quantitative and qualitative research.
