Global Media and Culture - MA

Whether through social media, advertising, film, music or museums, the media (in all its forms) helps shape our understanding of the world. It exposes us to news, views and ideas that can negatively or positively sway our sense of self and the world around us, not to mention the media itself. This multidisciplinary MA in Global Media and Culture examines the links between contemporary media, culture, society and identity. It provides a fascinating insight into the changing global media landscape, examining how culture and media are produced, distributed and consumed across a wide variety of sectors and industries.
