Description

This course is a part of the MSc Media and communication studies programme.

The study of media, communication and culture has a rich tradition in various methodological positions in the social sciences and humanities. This course critically evaluates established methodological perspectives on research methods in the study of media in society and culture.

The course is structured according to a critical reading of dominant methodological and epistemological perspectives of research methods within social science. This is done from the perspective of a pragmatist and phronetic philosophy of social science, which emphasizes questions of how, why and to whom media and communication studies matter. The overall aim of this course is to problematize and evaluate the significance of media and communication research for individuals, society and culture.

International student?

Make your application in the First Admission Round at universityadmissions.se.

Application period October–January for autumn semester and June–August for spring semester.

First or Second Admission Round?

All international students are encouraged to apply to the First admission round. This round takes place many months before the start of a semester and gives students the time they need to pay their tuition fees, apply for and receive their residence permit (if required), find housing, etc.

The Second admission round is an alternative for students from EU/EEA countries as they do not need a residence permit. Non-EU/EEA students will most likely not have enough time to obtain their permit before the start of the semester. However, even EU/EEA students are advised to apply during the First admission round, as some programmes can be applied for only in the January round. Also, this provides applicants with an admission decision much earlier, which is helpful in making decisions about their studies.
