Professors at Maharishi University of Management are pleased to announce a new master's programme in media and communications, to begin in autumn 2013. The launch of the yearlong programme is timely given the mass shift in media towards the Internet and digital formats.
The lead faculty in the new postgraduate programme are Stuart Tanner and Gurdy Leete.
Professor Tanner is an acclaimed producer and director of documentary films for the BBC, National Geographic, and the Discovery Channel. His projects include 'The Mahogany Trail', about the plight of the Amazonian Indians; 'Death on the Silk Road', which won the Rory Peck Award for Journalism and was about the effects of nuclear testing in China; 'Profits of Doom', an investigation into the policies of the World Bank and IMF in developing nations; and 'Children of Vengeance', a documentary for the BBC on the Arab-Israeli conflict that won the Foreign Press Association's Story of the Year award.
Professor Leete is Co-Chair of the Department of Media and Communications. He is the co-author of 11 books on popular software applications, including 8 books on the Web animation software package Flash, and he has published 19 essays about the frontiers of computing. His books have been translated into Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Russian and Spanish. He is also an award-winning graphics software engineer.
About the new master's degree, Professor Leete said, 'We are really excited about this new programme. . . . We have had a lot of success; the students are amazing and that has inspired us to offer the MA.'
He added that this is a great time to launch this master's programme:
'The world of media is going through an historic and unprecedented change... There are immense new opportunities opening up for people who want to launch a new career in the world of video.'
