About Media, Culture and Society at University of East Anglia (UEA)


This Master's programme draws on the University's international reputation for teaching in media and culture. It provides students with an opportunity to study contemporary media from a variety of perspectives and disciplines. The distinctive approach is best revealed in the compulsory module that looks at the role of media in global citizenship, media law and economics and different media systems.


Students have seminars and lectures for the initial semesters, and then commence working on their dissertation. The dissertation is a very important part of this degree: students choose their topic and are allocated an individual supervisor to give advice on every aspect of its creation. The School organises a day when all postgraduates, including MA and PhD students, meet together and discuss their research, with a session for MA students to discuss their proposals.


UEA's School of Political, Social and International Studies pride themselves on providing top-quality, research-inspired teaching with an interdisciplinary approach. Lecturers will share cutting edge information on your subject of study and provide a stimulating environment to learn. Students are taught by experts in media law, economics, political communication and identity politics. Most years, a trip to Brussels is organised for Master's students, visiting the EU and NATO, with opportunities to ask officials and military people questions on their work. It is also a chance to meet graduates from UEA who are now working in the area.


Over the course of the MA, students develop a variety of transferable skills including debating, oral presentations, team work, project work and essay writing. All students also take a module that is specifically designed to help improve research skills, ideal for those seeking a career in research. Graduates have taken up jobs in the fields of business, teaching, policy research, government and international organisations. The career centre at UEA is an excellent resource, hosting special days for Politics students to talk to professionals working in their field.
