Developing on significant interdisciplinary expertise in the culturally-contextualised understanding of media and communication practices, this masters programme will offer students the opportunity to develop a substantively and methodologically rigorous approach to the challenges of international media communication today. Exploring the rapidly changing world of contemporary communications practices, and the problems such practices raise for the historical legacy of European Englightenment traditions of thinking about economics, politics, society and culture, the programme brings cutting-edge research to bear on an analysis and exploration of the broader “world-historical” dynamics of heavily technologized media transformation and the challenges it raises.

The MA in Visual Culture introduces students to the new and fast-growing intellectual field of visual culture, by examining the histories, theories and practices of cultural production and consumption of visual images/objects in the contemporary and modern world. Read more
The MA in Visual Culture introduces students to the new and fast-growing intellectual field of visual culture, by examining the histories, theories and practices of cultural production and consumption of visual images/objects in the contemporary and modern world. Western and, increasingly, global culture is dominated by visual images – whether material or virtual – and by visual experience.

The course encourages connections across visual arts, architecture, film, cultural studies and critical theory, cultural geography, and history. It gives students the opportunity to concentrate on the modern period, post-1750, while offering the option to choose their modules from a range of disciplines in which visual culture is a key research focus.

Though this MA is offered by the Department of Art History, besides the core module, 'Critical Approaches to Art History and Visual Culture', it is also compulsory for you to take one module in the Institute of Film and Television Studies.

The Department of Art History incorporates the Nottingham Institute for Research in Visual Culture (NIRVC), which is a forum for research in art-historical and visual culture studies, drawing on a range of disciplines, within and beyond the University.

The University’s custombuilt Lakeside Arts Centre provides an excellent environment to support postgraduate studies in visual culture, with contemporary and historic art exhibitions at the Djanogly Art Gallery, and the DH Lawrence Pavilion – a newlybuilt drama, film, and performance space.

Developed in consultation and partnership with film and television studios, industry organisations and leading filmmakers, this new masters programme is designed to ensure participants develop an in-depth working knowledge of the industry in all its key aspects. These include; market and government regulations, audiences’ modes and means of consumption, the logistics of production development and the global network of finance, production, distribution and exhibition.

Students have access to in-house experts who are engaged in cutting-edge industry-related projects, and also to the expertise and insider knowledge provided by our industry partners. Unique to the UK, this MA also offers students the opportunity to apply for highly competitive internships in leading studios and organisations in Hollywood and the UK.

The programme places a strong emphasis on the global dimension of the film and television sector and related screen industries, including the US, China, the UK and other nations and regions.

This unique combination of expertise and industry links and opportunities makes the programme contemporary, relevant and an excellent primer for employment in this sector. The programme’s core aim is to help students develop a skillset that will allow them not simply to work in the industry, but to be an active part of it, developing as future leaders.

Students will have an opportunity to study in-depth topics such as audiences and consumption, production development and organisation, marketing and promotion, markets and regulation. Subjects are discussed within a framework that acknowledges the increasingly global nature of the industry, as well as the opportunities and challenges presented by new technologies and accompanying new entertainment formats (e.g. mobile viewing, second screens).

Alongside formal teaching and learning opportunities, the programme addresses the individual needs and aspirations of all students by ensuring all participants are be able to work on a year-long special project on an industry area/topic of specific interest to them. This will help each student develop materials and activities that will help them demonstrate to industry employers the skills and potential they can bring to their organisation and projects.

Part-time students complete the same components, but spread over two years.
