Course content

In collaboration with the School of Politics and International Relations, this MA will provide you with a thorough understanding of the close connections between critical theory and key contemporary political and social theories.

Critical theory is an immensely rich field of intellectual endeavour that has emerged from a continuous dialogue with theories of both society and politics.

This innovative MA enables you to engage with this dialogue and its relevance to contemporary phenomena.

You will be equipped with an advanced knowledge of the most significant developments in the tradition of critique and contemporary political thought.

Teaching staff from the Department of Culture, Film and Media, the School of Politics and International Relations, and other participating schools offer expertise in areas such as social and political theory, international relations, philosophy and cultural studies.
