MSc Culture and Society

About the MSc programme

The MSc Culture and Society gives its students the opportunity to develop expertise in the social study of cultural processes. Its ethos emphasises tight integration of leading-edge cultural theory, innovative methodologies and attention to the most significant cultural trends and practices, globally and locally.

Cultural Theory and Forms is a compulsory course designed to support you in developing a foundation in sociological approaches to cultural research. Through optional courses you are free to study and research any social processes that fall within the many broad understandings of ‘culture’. You may take courses on, or pursue independent research projects towards dissertations in areas such as textual or visual analyses of cultural texts; ethnographies of culture and media industries; studies of urban space, design or city culture; consumption and consumer culture; multi-culturalism and ethnicity; gender and sexuality; class and cultural capital.
