Postgraduate study in Media, Culture, Heritage

Full and part-time postgraduate degrees in the fields of media, culture and heritage.

Develop your skills

Undertaking a master's degree is a fantastic opportunity for you to learn more about yourself and the world. You can pursue the changes you feel need to happen.

Having a master's degree will develop your vocational and professional skills. Our alumni are successful in gaining work in their chosen fields. They form a growing global network of public and private sector professionals.

We have an experienced team of researchers and practitioners. They will mentor you to a deeper understanding of the world and your chosen profession. They will also guide you through multi-media practice-based experience.

You'll explore how organisations work, how the sector works, and with day-to-day working practices. Our programmes give you a broad understanding and experience of your chosen sector. We don't sacrifice depth of understanding or academic rigour.

I like the mixture of theory and practical and the broad range of topics that we study.
