Overview

Looking Closely at ‘Who We Are Now’: How we apply Media, Communication and Cultural Studies to Global Problem-Solving. Looking closely at ‘Who We Are Now’ is an introspective process that can help us explore our role as media, communications, and cultural studies experts and students. Embedded in our dual degrees are the practical pathways toward this critical knowledge via the application of these disciplines in the creative practice and political analysis of truly urgent global problems around sustainability and social justice. By demonstrating the impressive work from our students within this degree, this presentation will illustrate how you—as a media, communications, and cultural studies professional—can help work towards creative responses.

These events mark the launch of a set of distinctive dual degrees by the University of Portsmouth in the UK and Edith Cowan University in Western Australia. Students on these programmes will have the benefit of studying the complimentary curricula of both institutions, studying across two countries and receiving two awards.

The University of Portsmouth is one of the top 150 young universities in the world (Times Higher Education rankings 2021).

Edith Cowan University is one of the top 100 young universities in the world (Times Higher Education rankings 2021).
