The School of Literature, Language and Media (SLLM) contributes to the vibrant literary and intellectual life of Johannesburg. It offers students the opportunity to explore the implications of social and cultural diversity through the study of language, literature, writing, media studies and policy and regulation in the electronic communications and Internet sectors. It is home to top international scholars, including one of the few A-rated academics in literary studies, and prides itself on its high standard of teaching.
The School benefits from a close relationship with the LINK Centre, an interdisciplinary academic hub headquartered at the University’s Tshimologong Digital Innovation Precinct. The Centre offers three postgraduate degree programmes: the Master of Arts in ICT Policy and Regulation (coursework and research report), the Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Digital Knowledge Economy Studies (research only), and the PhD programme in Interdisciplinary Digital Knowledge Economy Studies (research only).
