Overview

Overview

Our MA in Media and Creative Cultures is a result of several years of research and consultancy in higher education in the fast developing field of media and creativity. Interdisciplinary with roots in cultural studies, philosophy, political science, fashion studies, activism, and digital technology; this degree offers comprehensive theoretical approaches in the study of media in contemporary culture.

This programme offers you in-depth training in the latest digital and media research methods and the opportunity to engage with critical materials and cultural developments, as well as to collaborate with international researchers.

Throughout the programme, you will not simply be media analysts, but also media creators and curators. You will contribute to timely discussions on media culture, conduct innovative research projects, and visit media institutions across London and beyond.

As a Master's student in Media and Creative Cultures at the University of Greenwich, you're encouraged to engage with London's pioneering cultural and media scene, with its many festivals, exhibitions, installations, conferences, lectures, and workshops.

Extra information

Assessment

This Master's degree uses a combination of teaching, learning and assessment methods. It is based upon an independent, though supervised, research project undertaken by the student combined with structured learning through lectures, seminars and site visits.

While a combination of traditional and innovative assessment forms is used, written assignments remain as the core format of assessments. Blogs, audio-visual presentations and site-specific tasks, however, also occupy a significant part of the assessment process.
