Course Summary

Studying and working in the media requires an acute consciousness of the way media and culture shape people’s understanding of, and responses to, their world. Central to everything from the daily routines to the grand designs of contemporary society - from the election of a president to the fall of a government - it’s almost impossible to make sense of national or world events without understanding the role media and culture play.

And making sense of it all depends on knowledge of the social, economic, political and legal factors that help in the production, distribution and consumption of media content. This, in turn, relies on an understanding of the arts and humanities and the social sciences, economics, politics and the law, and media and cultural studies.

Our MA will help you investigate and reflect upon how media and society are linked. You’ll explore the practical and professional implications of these links, and you could develop skills to enable you to work in the media.

OVERVIEW

Our course will allow you to study contemporary media and culture from a variety of perspectives and disciplines. Taught by leading experts in the fields of media and cultural studies, journalism, politics, economics, law and international development, it will ask you to examine the role of media in global citizenship, as well as helping you understand the workings of media law and economics, and the different media systems.

Through your choice of optional modules, from a range that includes practical media options, you will be able to tailor your degree to meet your interests, focusing on the aspects of media and society that you feel are most important and most fascinating. In your Master’s dissertation, you will take the exploration of your interests even further.
