You will have a strong theoretical foundation that you can use to critically analyse and historically contextualise complex intermedial processes and practices. The programme will enable you to use comparative methods to explore aesthetic, technological and other aspects of contemporary culture. This can be applied both to traditional media such as film, television, radio, and the visual arts, as well as more contemporary media forms including games, web-based formats such as memes, apps, platforms and interfaces.
Practical skills may be obtained through internships in various cultural institutions.
You will acquire a set of overarching competencies that are highly valued in the job market irrespective of your career: critical thinking, research design and analytical skills, and the ability to communicate and present complex ideas with clarity.
