The MA in Culture, Society and Globalization explores some of the most current topics in society today. If you’re interested in finding out how lives, identities and cultures across the world are increasingly connected and the issues affecting them, along with how social media has impacted on our global society, then this is the degree for you. This unique course is an ideal grounding for those interested in further study at PhD level or looking for employment in an international arena, for government organisations or the third sector. The communication and cultural knowledge developed in this degree is highly valued by any organisation with international interests. You will discover more about the different ways in which people are shaped by their nationality, gender and ethnicity and the global effect of cultural transformations and you will develop advanced research skills to help you design, interpret and critically evaluate findings, culminating in the completion of a research project of your own.
This is a fascinating and in-depth degree which examines key sociological theories, concepts and approaches in the study of culture, society and globalisation. A set of core modules will provide you with the knowledge and skills needed to investigate social and cultural differences and transformations in the contemporary world and the international workplace. You will also develop an appreciation of the features and applications of social media and an insight into the effect of social media on society. You will be based in a department with a reputation for cutting edge research and have access to two innovative research centres CURB (Centre for Urban Research) and ECCE (European Centre for Cultural Exploration), both of which foster a dynamic environment in which to study and provide opportunities to connect with researchers and students in other parts of the world to share experiences and explore cultural findings. This degree will give you the skills to become an adept researcher, enabling you to develop a research project, from initial concept to analysis and dissemination of results. A choice of option modules will then allow you to personalise your degree, enabling you to follow a path that suits your individual interests and career goals.
