MA Cultural History


Course Description

This innovative, interdisciplinary MA Cultural History programme of study explores aspects of modern and contemporary history through different cultural forms including art, literature, music, dance and film. The purpose of the MA is to ground and enhance your knowledge of Cultural History. We define this concept broadly to mean studying peoples, places and ideas, as well as cultural forms (e.g. visual culture, literature, popular music, film and television).

There are two routes through the MA degree which are available to full-time and part-time students.
