The aim of the MA Marketing Communications course at University of westminster  is to enhance your career prospects through knowledge and understanding of industry best-practice, balanced with academic theory. The curriculum is designed to give you an understanding of the marketing communications channels and tools that underpin the development of an integrated marketing communications strategy, which you deliver to complete the course.

It covers both the development of a communications message, along with the media and channel opportunities that together deliver an integrated marketing communication campaign. This involves the disciplines of branding, advertising, public relations, promotional marketing, digital marketing communications (including direct and interactive marketing and social media) and is underpinned by an in-depth understanding of consumers obtained through research and the exploration of branding.

All students will be initially enrolled on the MA to give you time to appreciate the different emphasis of each degree and reflect on your own ability, strengths and future career development. You will make your decision during the first semester of your study as to whether to continue to follow the MA or pursue the MSc.
