Careers and Employability

The Digital Media, Culture & Society MA is of broad relevance to media/ digital media graduates, as well as professionals, pursuing a new or developing interest in how advances in digital media shape our cultural, political and social lives. The course combines the digital fabric of learning with academic and applied interrogation of an extensive range of media-related developments in economy, society and culture.


The flexible modes of study (online, campus, full-time, part-time) combined with students’ own choice of route through the course, makes the MA Digital Media, Culture & Society particularly attractive to:


Academics, teachers and educators: Those wishing to pursue an academic career or already working in education can further their media subject knowledge and expertise by going on to Doctoral study after the Digital Media, Culture & Society MA.


Media professionals, practitioners, managers and innovators: Those seeking to pursue a leading role in a cultural, creative or social organisation will gain skills in managing research projects, develop a critical understanding of the nature of cultural industries and the digital sector.

A key feature of Masters level is the development of transferable skills required for professional development.

Previous graduates of the MA have gone on to study for a PhD; lecture at the University of Sussex; work in journalism at the Chongqing Broadcasting Group; in the public diplomacy division at NATO; the Australia’s Swarn Conference; Agile Impact Group, and the International Symposium of Electronic Art.
