As a student on Culture and Society programme from London School of Economics and Political Science you have free range to study and research any social processes that fall within the many broad understandings of culture. For example, we study areas such as textual or visual analyses of cultural texts; ethnographies of culture and media industries; studies of urban space, design or city culture; consumption and consumer culture; multi-culturalism and ethnicity; gender and sexuality; class and cultural capital. Moreover, the degree actively encourages you to think and research globally.
MSc Culture and Society students come from a diversity of backgrounds – anything from economics through anthropology to cultural and media studies and on to arts, design and humanities. The degree core course is designed to support all students, from whatever background, in developing a foundation in sociological approaches to cultural research.
Graduates have gone on to a diverse range of destinations including doctoral degrees, cultural policy and management jobs, teaching, creative industries (including advertising and marketing), performance arts and more.
