Course Summary

This course teaches students to be actively and critically engaged with the fast-paced fashion media. MA Fashion Media Practice and Criticism encourages students to engage with social, cultural and political issues within the industry. Research methodologies underpin each unit and help in understanding fashion communication as an agent to evoke change. Study is focused on both theory and practice in fashion communication. LCF offers students the opportunity to develop Personal and Professional Development (PPD) skills while studying through: An on-course work experience or placement year. Please note, this is not available on every course; please see the Course Details section for information about work placement opportunities; Access to to speaker programmes and events featuring alumni and industry; Access to careers activities, such as CV clinics and one-to-one advice sessions; Access to a graduate careers service; Access to a live jobsboard for all years; Advice on setting up your own brand or company.

Graduates who wish to continue their education at a higher postgraduate level are encouraged to progress to suitable research options within the College, the University or elsewhere. Many postgraduates prefer to seek employment as soon as they have completed their MA, and we expect graduates from this course to progress to careers in fashion communication areas of criticism, image making, editing, curation, publishing or writing in both traditional and new media. Additionally, graduates would be suited to work across the creative industries or academia, as well as institutional or organisational areas of fashion such as corporate social responsibility, education, policy or innovation. This is a new course, so as yet we have no final year graduates. We are, however, confident that when we do our graduates will be highly employable within the global fashion media and communication industry.
