Master's programme in Communications, Media and Creative Industries

The program is designed with a progressive logic. Throughout the Master's curriculum, courses and workshops develop professional and practical skills that can be immediately applied in the professional environment. These courses cover various areas, including:

  • Communication (digital strategy, influence, responsible and impactful PR)
  • Digital marketing, influencer marketing, and social media
  • Corporate communication and brand strategy (branding)
  • Content creation strategy
  • Creative and artistic direction (design thinking, design software, creative methodologies, etc.)
  • Opinion measurement
  • Media landscape knowledge (traditional and digital media)
  • Sociology
  • Rhetoric
  • Entrepreneurship and innovation
  • Project management
  • Languages

The first year focuses on acquiring the fundamentals. In the first semester, there are interdisciplinary courses in social sciences and management, as well as core subjects related to the sector (media landscape, opinion, media economics, etc.). In the second semester, students also take courses related to the fundamental aspects of the professions and can start shaping their projects through elective courses.

Students have the option to take a gap year between the two years of the Master's program to refine their career goals or to complement their academic journey with a semester at a partner institution (especially in creative schools in France or internationally recognized universities).

The second year is dedicated to implementing the acquired knowledge, allowing students to specialize through a wide range of elective courses. They can choose to specialize in brand communication, public and private organizational communication, or in the field of media and creative industries (film, TV series, video games, new creative writing formats, etc.). During this year of specialization, students work extensively on practical scenarios and real-life case studies.

Additionally, students have the choice between:

  • Six months of coursework at Sciences Po, followed by a six-month end-of-studies internship.
  • One year of apprenticeship in a company, combining work experience with academic learning.

Please note that the possibility of completing the second year of this Master's program through an apprenticeship is open to any student under 30 years old who has had prior professional experience of at least 6 months full-time (internship or job), whether it occurred before entering the Master's program or during the Master's program itself (gap year).
