Course Summary

This innovative, interdisciplinary MA Cultural History programme of study explores aspects of modern and contemporary history through different cultural forms including art, literature, music, dance and film. The purpose of the MA is to ground and enhance your knowledge of Cultural History. We define this concept broadly to mean studying peoples, places and ideas, as well as cultural forms (e.g. visual culture, literature, popular music, film and television). On successful completion of the course, we place considerable emphasis on the development of primary research skills and the enhancement of analytical and written skills. These are essential if you wish to continue on to a research degree. The knowledge and skills you gain by completing our MA will stand you in good stead if you wish to pursue a career within the cultural sector (arts, media, museums and heritage). You may wish to complete our MA if you are looking for an intellectual challenge later in life.
