The MLitt in Visual Culture offers advanced training in the critical understanding of visual culture. Engaging with a wide range of material, including film, photography and digital media, the course introduces the key ideas and debates which have shaped understanding of visual culture during the twentieth and twenty first centuries. Two core courses provide a grounding in theoretical perspectives and critical skills. Optional modules allow students to explore visual culture in different historical and cultural contexts, and include a practice-based pathway. Core courses 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 course will be of interest to students with backgrounds including 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. Students studying on the MLitt in Visual Culture become associate members of GWW, the Centre for Visual Culture.
