[[Master of Arts in Cultural Studies]] The Master of Arts in Cultural Studies is designed for a small cohort of students who seek to transform their communities through applied forms of cultural work that engage diverse populations. Through the development of a learning and professional portfolio, cultural studies graduates integrate work completed in core courses, elective courses, and a capstone project.
[[Program]] The Master of Arts in Cultural Studies at the University of Washington Bothell offers an integrative approach to the study of culture across diverse locations. Designed for a small cohort, Cultural Studies prepares students for careers in social, cultural, and arts fields or further interdisciplinary graduate education across the arts, humanities, and social and natural sciences.

Our programs are structured with classes offered in the evening to serve non-traditional students, including working professionals. Consequently, all graduate classes on the UW Bothell campus meet twice a week, after 5 pm. While you are welcome to work while enrolled in the program, please note that because the programs are rigorous, it is beneficial to have the ability to adjust your work schedule to allow more focus on your studies during periods when your academic workload intensifies.
The MA in Cultural Studies is the first graduate program in the Pacific Northwest, and one of very few programs nationally, to partner the interdisciplinary study of art and culture with a community-based learning network. The program offers students multiple opportunities to develop and document educational experiences and professional skills suited to their individual career goals.
Cultural Studies students develop a portfolio of work featuring research and collaborative projects. The MA in Cultural Studies degree positions graduates for an array of exciting career pathways (See http://www.bothell.washington.edu/culturalstudies/macs-careers)
[[Program Curriculum]] [[Overview]] The Cultural Studies curriculum builds foundational knowledge of different forms of cultural studies inquiry, with a special emphasis on participatory action research strategies and diverse forms of community collaboration. The two-year program draws on the existing and emerging strengths, interests, and experiences of students and faculty alike. The program's curriculum and its learning environment are intentionally collaborative, generative, and flexible.
Cultural Studies is a student-driven and portfolio-based program. At every stage, we have designed the curriculum to build on the energy and resources that students bring to the program. It will work equally well for students whose background is largely academic and those with extensive professional experience. Our aim is to provide Cultural Studies students with multiple opportunities to develop a rich toolkit of skills and a vital network of professional and community relationships that will enhance their future careers across a range of arts and cultural practices and fields.
There is not a specific undergraduate degree necessary to be considered for the Cultural Studies program, and students who hold a bachelor's degree in any undergraduate discipline are encouraged to apply. For additional information see http://www.bothell.washington.edu/culturalstudies/admissions
