Course content

Bridging the arts and social sciences, this course enables you to engage critically with key thinkers, traditions and debates in media and cultural studies.

You study the media as institutions, texts and systems of representation and explore the media’s political, social and cultural power in a variety of contexts. You will:
-Develop a skills portfolio in critical analysis, creative thinking and research methods
-Choose from a wide variety of options, allowing you to set your own intellectual agenda
-Gain methodological tools to research a wide range of media

How will I study?
As this is not a practice-based course, teaching is through lectures, small-group seminars and individual tutorials.

This MA is structured around core modules and options in the first two terms. In the final term, you undertake a supervised research-led dissertation on a topic of your choice.

Modules are assessed by term papers. You also submit a 15,000-word dissertation.
