With Athabasca University’s Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies - Cultural Studies, you will learn to think holistically, critically and reflectively. You will find the connections and points of overlap between specialized and generalized knowledge. You will also learn problem-solving skills and policy-making strategies.
Cultural Studies is the exploration of the links between the arts and other human activities in complex societies. It includes both high art and popular culture, both ancient texts and new hypertexts.
Cultural Studies is interdisciplinary in its methodologies and in its goals of finding integrated and contextualized views of human cultural activities. It is centrally concerned with issues of identity and power, particularly relating to gender, ethnicity, class and other sites of contestation. Cultural Studies courses will be of interest to all those wishing to understand the myriad ways in which cultural texts and practices construct and reproduce representations of ourselves and our societies. Your program will finish with a final integrated project or capstone paper that will exercise and explore your newly acquired skills and knowledge.
You can choose to complete this project in a grouped study capstone course, or through an individual study project that will allow you to:
- explore a question or issue that’s important to you
- relate your research to a work or life situation
- address a community problem
- The Business of Emotions
- Creative Writing
- Industrial Heritage
- Global Education
