Humanities (Media, Communication and Culture) - MRes

On this Master of Research (MRes), you'll be supported to build a bespoke programme of advanced research and study to match your personal and professional interests - you can learn a language, explore palaeography, broaden your field of study, or complete a work placement. The Media pathway allows for the critical study of media forms, from television to advertising to social media. It offers the change to look in-depth both at the issues shaping historical and contemporary media, and at the increasingly important part such media play in culture, politics and everyday life.
