Society, Communication and Media

MA programme beginning in September 2019!

The two-year, English-language Master’s 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 international as well as Czech students up-to-date and relevant expertise in the prospective and rapidly evolving fields of mass media and sociology. SCM is taught by members of the Institute of Sociological Studies (ISS FSV UK) and The Institute of Communication Studies and Journalism (ICSJ FSV UK).

SCM 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. In addition to 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.
