Course summary

This interdisciplinary course will enable you to benefit from the widespread expertise of both the School of Sociology and Social Policy and the School of Media and Communication. You’ll gain an in-depth understanding of key issues, debates and theoretical perspectives on a wide variety of sociological, media and cultural themes, and acquire the skills to critically analyse their intersections and implications for how we interact with culture and media in contemporary society. You’ll be taught by leading researchers in the field, covering key issues and concepts such as media and social media; consumption; audiences; representation; globalisation; migration and place; tourism; inequality; creative work and material culture. With a grounding in sociological approaches to the study of culture and media, you’ll explore themes around power, inequality and identity, enabling you to think critically about the relationship between gender, class, race and ethnicity in the cultural realm.
