Media and Cultural Studies is an exciting and developing discipline that draws together theories and practices from a range of disciplines such as Media Studies, Film and Television Studies, English and Sociology. To learn more, join this Global Media and Culture programme from Keele University.

Visit the official programme website for more information


The Global Media and Culture programme from Keele University  involves three main aspects:

  • the study of theories and ideas about media and cultural production in a global context
  • the critical analysis of cultural texts and practices from around the world
  • engagement in practical creative production.

The MA in Global Media and Culture seeks to explore the relationship between these three areas and to show how knowledge of each informs and influences the others. In addition, it will provide you with the skills necessary for academic study at an advanced level, either for those wishing to go on to further academic research, or as advanced preparation for those interested in pursuing careers in a range of media and culture industries.

The emphasis of the programme is the critical and analytical study of the contemporary global framework of media and cultural studies, the production and continuation of localised cultural identities within a global context, and a theoretically-informed approach to the creative production of media texts.

The Global Media and Culture programme at Keele University represents the multidisciplinary coming together of academics and practitioners from a range of fields. The distinctive nature of Keele as a pioneer for interdisciplinary academic study provides the Global Media and Culture Programme with an ideal basis for the development of cross-subject study.


The MA can lead to a range of career pathways, offering a range of transferable skills (in written and verbal communication) in addition to applied skills in media practice (including film-making and digital image manipulation). Alumni have pursued careers in journalism and the media and creative media industries, as well as marketing, human resources, and further postgraduate study.

The University has a Careers and Employability team who can provide you with advice and guidance about your future career. The team offer specialist workshops, for example 'Options with Postgraduate Study' and Moving on with your PhD', and can also meet you individually to give guidance and support to help you develop your career.  We also hold regular careers fairs on campus and informal events where you can meet employers. You will also have access to our database of job opportunities and digital resources such as online psychometric testing.
