Course summary

Why choose this course?

This innovative course introduces you to advanced level study of the various aspects of popular culture; principally that produced and consumed in Britain since the late nineteenth century.

The programme consists of a broad range of modules from a number of academic disciplines, including History, English, Sociology, Cultural Studies, Religious Studies, and Film Studies.

All modules are taught by experts in their respective fields, and informed by research at the forefront of the various disciplines. For your own independent research into popular culture, we can also offer supervision in a wide range of areas and approaches.

You will experience a variety of teaching methods with a high level of input from students on the course. Assessment is largely by coursework, essays and presentations.

Career Paths

  • Successful completion of the programme will enhance your career prospects, whether studied at PGCert, PGDip or MA level.
  • Skills and knowledge gained will be particularly relevant to archivists and curators, researchers, writers and journalists, librarians, and teachers of popular culture.
  • The programme will equip you with the theory, methodology and appropriate critical discourse required for postgraduate work.
  • It will encourage the development of more general personal and academic competencies, such as those required for effective information handling, analysis and presentation of findings, and offers a sound basis for further doctoral research.
