MA Media and Cultural Politics


Course Description

Study

This MA reflects an important and developing area in the social sciences. Its impact can be seen in the rise of identity politics, new social movements and the emergence of an alternative, cultural view of politics. Students consider the impact of cultural politics and links to the rise of nationalism, multiculturalism and the importance attached to the mass media. This MA offers an inter-disciplinary approach to the study of cultural politics, building on the common interests of political scientists, philosophers, economists, literary theorists, historians as well as experts in media and cultural studies.

Structure

Students have seminars and lectures for the initial semesters, and then commence working on their dissertation. The dissertation is a very important part of this degree: students choose their topic and are allocated an individual supervisor to give advice on every aspect of its creation. The School organises a day when all postgraduates, including MA and PhD students, meet together and discuss their research, with a session for MA students to discuss their proposals.

Teaching

UEA’s School of Political, Social and International Studies pride themselves on providing top-quality, research-inspired teaching with an interdisciplinary approach. Lecturers will share cutting edge information on your subject of study and provide a stimulating environment to learn. Most years, a trip to Brussels is organised for Master's students, visiting the EU and NATO, with opportunities to ask officials and military people questions on their work. It is also a chance to meet graduates from UEA who are now working in the area.

Employability

Over the course of the MA, students develop a variety of transferable skills including debating, oral presentations, team work, project work and essay writing. All students also take a module that is specifically designed to help improve research skills, ideal for those seeking a career in research. Graduates have taken up jobs in the fields of business, teaching, policy research, government and international organisations. The career centre at UEA is an excellent resource, hosting special days for Politics students to talk to professionals working in their field.
