Course contentThe MA Cultural and Media Studies is part-time and designed to fit around professional working life. The degree is project-centred, giving you the chance to carry out a creative, practice-based or academic project in Cultural and Media Studies. You'll conduct a project over two years, under our supervision, as well produce a dissertation in the second year on a related theme.
The MA Cultural and Media Studies is part of our successful Creative Media Arts scheme. Our MA students have undertaken projects such as developing film and television scripts, creating websites that build on new ideas, curating exhibitions of cutting edge work, writing innovative fiction, making documentaries and dramas, creating portfolios of digital photographs, and researching aspects of the media, arts and educational organisations. In negotiation and agreement with your tutor, the kind of project you choose to do for your Masters is up to you.
Students have full access to digital media facilities, a theatre and a digital gallery, supported by dedicated technicians. With LSBU close to the South Bank, across the river from the West End and Soho, our students have unrivalled access to the capital's creative and media arts communities.
LSBU will open a new £4 million Media Centre for School of Art and Creative Industries students in late 2015.
