Course summary

What makes the MRes in Media and Culture at Worcester special?

This is a unique opportunity for you to work with national and international experts in Media and Culture while, at the same time, developing yourself as an expert in the field.

One of very few such courses in the UK, this MRes will enable you to acquire fundamental research skills while carrying out a major research project of your choice. The MRes offers an ideal bridge to further postgraduate study (e.g. a PhD) or to acquire, transferable employer-related skills.

Key features

  • A bridge from undergraduate to postgraduate study
  • Develop advanced research skills (e.g. in areas such as literature review and research methods)
  • Work with national and international experts in your field
  • Carry out a major research project in a topic of your choice
  • Acquire transferable skills in areas such as project planning and management, time management, research and data analysis, digital literacy and report writing

Where could it take you?

This course will help you to develop both intellectual and technical competencies in research. It will prepare you for academic careers by covering the fundamental components of academic research: developing a topic, literature review, method and analysis, and the planning and execution of a substantial piece of written or practical research. Through the 'apprenticeship' model, your work will be closely integrated with that of an expert supervisor and with an academic department giving you valuable experience of contributing to and working within a community of scholars. This will allow possible development towards further postgraduate research such as a PhD. From our first intake onto the MRes programme in 2016-17, two of our graduates went on to gain competitive, fully-funded 3 year PhD bursaries in the region.

An MRes in Media and Culture will also help you to progress towards a career in equivalent research-based employment. This might include, for example, in the media/cultural industries, internet or social media companies, environmental organisations or groups, as an artist or media practitioner, or work for a government organisation, NGO, research, arts studio, museum etc. In the context of an ever-expanding information economy, an MRes would prepare you for work in any organisation looking for literate and research trained staff. Further support will be available to you via the Research School's Student Researcher Development Programme. This provides workshops in, amongst other things, oral presentations, public engagement, writing CVs, bid writing, and entrepreneurial opportunities.
