Our course gives students unique opportunity to critically study the developments and implications of digital technologies on contemporary culture and society. Our programme looks at how digital developments are reshaping various socio-political and economic fields such as work, governance, identity, cultural communication, finance, industry, and many more.
By researching digital technology and industries, graduates of this course will sharpen their analytical and communicative skills while gaining critical insights into the effect of the digital. In addition to the theoretical core module, students will have the opportunity to take practise based optional modules to develop their practical and organisational skills through individual and team-based projects.

King's College London is home to over 11,700 postgraduate students and attracts some of the best academic minds in the world. King’s is ranked a top 10 university in the world by the 2020 QS World University Rankings and we are recognised for the global influence of our research and innovation.
When choosing a graduate degree programme, I faced a conundrum. I wanted to build upon my background in journalism. But I didn’t just want to stick with the familiar; I hoped to go deeper into the dynamics and technologies of our increasingly digital world. However, finding a programme offering the right balance of technical skills, theory and real-world experience proved a trying task.
At many universities, such a programme simply did not exist. Of those I could find, some were too limited in focus, others too theory-heavy. None seemed the right fit. Then I found the Digital Culture and Society M.A. programme at King’s College London. King’s sits at the forefront of digital scholarship, and with the breadth of courses it offers I could tailor the programme to my exact research interests.
Receiving the International Graduate Scholarship just cemented my certainty that I had found the right place. The funding allows me the chance to focus on my education and the sheer experience of living in London. Once I arrived, King’s only exceeded my expectations. I still can’t believe that I am studying in the heart of London, that I can look out my residence hall window and see the Tower Bridge. I attend lectures given by leading practitioners in digital industries and take field trips to the British Library. The Digital Culture and Society programme is giving me an experience I couldn’t find anywhere else.
"The MA programme and the course staff offer a supportive but challenging environment for learning. The course lecturers incredibly helpful and I would strongly encourage every student to participate in is the internship programme."
