MLitt in Visual Culture: applications open

GWW is now accepting applications for its MLitt in Visual Culture for entry in 2016/17. After a year’s break in 2013/14, the programme re-launched this year with four students studying full time. Interdisciplinary in scope, the programme engages with a wide range of materials, including film, photography, digital media, and visual art. It also introduces students to key ideas and debates that have shaped our understanding of visual culture in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Two core courses ground students in theoretical perspectives and critical skills, including writing for a non-academic audience and working with cultural organisations. Optional courses allow students to explore visual culture in different historical and cultural contexts, and include a practice-based pathway. The core modules prepare students for their dissertation project, which allows for the sustained investigation of a topic identified by the student working in consultation with their supervisor. The programme will be of interest to students with a range of backgrounds, such as Film Studies, Cultural Studies, English, Modern Languages and Art History. It will also be of interest to those with a professional background in the visual arts and media. More details on the programme and how to apply can be found here. All MLitt students are given associate member status of GWW for the duration of their studies. Informal enquires about the programme can be made to the programme director, Dr Paul Flaig.
