This MA provides students with the opportunity to study social media in its societal, political, regulatory, industrial and cultural contexts.
The teaching is research-inspired and connected to the University of Westminster’s Centre for Social Media Research (http://www.westminster.ac.uk/csmr) that is located within the Communication and Media Research Institute (http://www.westminster.ac.uk/camri) that in the recent Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 has been ranked as one of Britain’s leading institutions in media and communication studies (http://results.ref.ac.uk/Results/ByUoa/36). It is the home of some of the world’s leading social media research and combines this focus with its established traditions in critical and global media/communication studies.
The MA in Social Media, Culture & Society has a focus on the study of social media’s political, economic and cultural dimensions that are addressed with qualitative and theoretical research in combination with practice-based and creative approaches that use digital and social media for studying these media’s implications for culture and society.
