Course summary

Welcome to MA Studies in Media and Culture

MA Studies in Media and Culture is a critical theory degree, designed to provide a thorough grounding in issues dominating contemporary thought on media, technology, and cultural practice. Students have the opportunity to investigate key debates reshaping this expanding and diverse field, examining various theoretical, philosophical, historical, and aesthetic approaches to better understand the complex, convergent, and entangled processes of mediation that characterise our contemporary networked culture.

The coherence of the programme is achieved through close connections between modules, reflecting the research interests of the teaching team. Students are encouraged to explore the various aspects of the ecological entanglements of media; analyse 21st-Century cultural processes and phenomena within a global context; and engage in reflexive, experimental research practice, building upon the knowledge and literacies that they already possess as result of their everyday experiences with media culture.

How You Study

Every student takes all nine modules as part of a single, coherent pathway.

How You Are Assessed

Assessment is through written work, including essays and a dissertation, as well as through presentations. In addition, some optional modules provide the opportunity for collaborative research projects which involve elements of both theory and practice (eg. audio-visual essays), submission of research portfolios, and contribution to group blogs.

The University of Lincoln's policy on assessment feedback aims to ensure that academics will return in-course assessments to students promptly usually within 15 working days of the submission date (unless stated differently above).

Career Opportunities

Graduates can go on to careers in the media and cultural industries, while others may utilise their knowledge and advanced critical-thinking skills in research roles across a range of commercial and public sector organisations. Some choose to go on to doctoral study and pursue a career in academia.
