We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
.This interdisciplinary, visual theory-based course is established around the belief that visual literacy and the impact of visual forms of thinking and working play significant roles in our society. On the course, we interrogate visual perception and representation in high and popular culture, explore how these produce meanings, and how such meanings shape societies and individuals.
The course introduces you to a wide range of historical and contemporary debates that inform the theories and practices of visual culture, and supports you in developing a conceptual framework within which to evaluate the role of the visual arts, and other forms of visual production, in contemporary society and culture.
The course gives you a solid grounding for careers in the art and cultural sectors as well

You should have a good Honours degree (usually 2:1 or above, or equivalent) in a relevant subject area, including any discipline in arts and humanities, fine art and performing arts, as well as some social science subjects. Relevant work experience might also be taken into consideration, especially in the case of applicants who don’t meet the standard entry criteria.
Being a part of the Visual Culture MA programme at Westminster stimulated my ambition and interest in various interdisciplinary approaches to creative thinking, and has also opened doors into an innovative community of visual theorists and cultural practices. With the benefits of new knowledge and inspiration, I hope to pursue PhD research at the Humboldt University in Berlin and thus become an active member in the wider creative local and global community.
My experience on the engaging Visual Culture MA was very positive. The interdisciplinary nature of the course opens up a vast and fascinating landscape where humanities and art, theory and practice are deeply interrelated. In this suggestive landscape, I was free to find my own way, to carve out my own pathway, developing and exploring my interests. Despite such a subjective approach, this was not a lonely journey. In the friendly and international environment of the University of Westminster I have established solid and inspiring relationships with both students and professors coming from all over the world. I am now motivated to continue on this research road, and will carry on my studies at PhD level.
