Course content

Cultural processes are creative and dynamic, meaning that our analysis of them must be too. How can cultural analysis engage with the most significant challenges of the contemporary globalised world, with all its inequities and all its possibilities. Can the critical traditions of sociological thought provide adequate responses to today's world.

This programme emphasises the critical analysis of cultural processes from both an advanced theoretical perspective and a rigorous, empirical one. Our most flexible MA, the programme benefits from an expanded choice of option courses. In addition to the core course and one chosen from within a wide range of Sociology options, you are able to choose two further courses from across a range of participating departments, allowing you to tailor the degree to your individual interests.
