The master’s degree in LGTBI+ Communication is presented by the Institute of Communication (InCom-UAB), an interdisciplinary and international research centre.

From the field of research, sexuality is a fundamental category of analysis in the social sciences and humanities. Proof of this is the diversity of studies from many disciplines (anthropology, sociology, psychology, history, ...).

Currently the female/male binomial is being strongly questioned and remodelled from sexual orientations that, with many difficulties, are finding ways to exit. This is precisely the reason why its visibility is often linked to social movements of struggle. It is not easy to show your sexual identity when traditional ethical and moral criteria have historically characterized LGTBI+ groups as negligible.

In this context, everything that involves reflecting on these realities or working from, with and/or for these people and groups is very complex and, therefore, requires specialized training, specific knowledge and skills. We offer this training to the present master’s degree, which is especially aimed at professionals in the area of communication.

The contents of the master’s programme covers five areas:
(A) an approach to LGTBI+ gender studies to acquire basic notions for the elaboration of discourses and narratives;
(B) a review of the sociocultural constructions of these groups, emphasizing current social movements and the question of intersectionality, in order to know their daily lives beyond stereotypes;
(C) an updated overview on the dissemination of LGTBI+ content within the framework of digital culture and Big Data;
(D) a complete exposition of the journalistic tools that exist to treat the subject with journalistic rigor, and
(E) an analysis of the emerging narrative practices in all spheres - not just the journalistic one -, with special dedication to those contents that arise from the collective itself.

This master’s degree has a mixed orientation. On the one hand, it has an advanced studies’ component for graduates in Communication Sciences. On the other hand, it responds to people with higher degrees from other disciplines who seek to incorporate a specialized profile in gender and communication issues into their curricula.

Internships

UAB masters and graduate diplomas may include or facilitate external academic internships in companies or institutions in order to help the student to achieve a level of expertise that facilitates the insertion or promotion in the workplace.
