In addition, it offers detailed study of these institutions, issues and processes in specific regions of the world. The Master of Arts, International Communication program, concerns itself with problems such as: how messages of 'modernisation' are promoted to and received by audiences; how promotion of 'modernisation' through communication strategies affects development in society and identity in the individual; international public relations; and issues such as international information flows.
