Program Information

Degree Offered:

Master of Arts

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Master of Arts in Cultural Studies programme investigates the relationship between art, society and all facets of media as well as the techniques that shape both art and society. Inevitably and deliberately, its approach is interdisciplinary. The programme attracts students of cultural studies from various backgrounds, all of whom are interested in examining the relations between society and various media in greater depth and detail. Rather than pursuing a clearly demarcated object of study, the programme applies a practice-driven approach to both contemporary and historical phenomena. This is an initial Master's programme and can be followed on full-time or part-time basis.
