Course content

MA Studies in Media and Culture is a critical theory degree, designed to provide a thorough grounding in issues dominating contemporary thought on media, technology, and cultural practice. Students have the opportunity to investigate key debates reshaping this expanding and diverse field, examining various theoretical, philosophical, historical, and aesthetic approaches to better understand the complex, convergent, and entangled processes of mediation that characterise our contemporary networked culture.

The coherence of the programme is achieved through close connections between modules, reflecting the research interests of the teaching team. Students are encouraged to explore the various aspects of the ecological entanglements of media; analyse 21st-Century cultural processes and phenomena within a global context; and engage in reflexive, experimental research practice, building upon the knowledge and literacies that they already possess as result of their everyday experiences with media culture.
