Media, Culture and Society (MA)
This MA provides students with an opportunity to study contemporary media from a variety of perspectives and disciplines. The distinctive approach is best revealed in the compulsory module which brings together key aspects of modern media. It looks at the role of media in global citizenship, at media law and economics, and at different media systems. This module provides a foundation to explore in more detail a number of related issues on the rest of the course.
This is a relatively new MA. It was launched in 2008-2009 and it draws on the University’s international reputation for teaching in media and culture. The MA is fully inter-disciplinary and you will be taught by experts in media law, economics, political communication and identity politics.
Several of the MA programmes have Economic and Social Research Council (ERSC) recognition. This means that they meet national criteria for the training of social scientists. These skills are very valuable to a wide range of careers.
