Culture Study

Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Culture Study refers to any program that focuses on human culture. It is best oriented for those who are interested in the forces that shape the world of humans today, from media to direct issues like gender and sexuality.

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.

Masters in Culture Study in South East England in United Kingdom. ’This is a degree of the highest quality’ Prof. Frank Burnet MBE, external examiner, 2009-2013 This MSc is unique amongst science communication programmes in the UK and globally because of the depth of the critical humanities perspectives that it brings to bear on science: history, sociology, ethics and visual arts. Using the latest scholarship, we enable students to get behind contemporary and historic science to understand how knowledge is created and consumed within society. The course also features visiting professionals from a range of sectors (medical writing, journalism, arts, museums). Practical and creative assessments harness students' developing knowledge to create a portfolio of skills that are highly valued by employers. There is a particular focus on developing excellence in writing. The MSc in Science, Communication and Society complements our more straightforward MA in History of Science, Technology, Environment and Medicine. If you are interested in the history of science or STS, you might nevertheless choose the MSc for its focus on practical and marketable skills, and for the route that it provides between an academic study of the history of science and related careers (museums, policy, lobbying, NGOs). However, the route to further study in history of science remains open; the programme’s graduates have gone into PhDs in history of science, PhDs in science policy or science communication, as well as professional work in a variety of science communication sectors. Entry Requirements Minimum 2.1 or equivalent in history or a relevant subject. In certain circumstances, the School will consider candidates who have not followed a conventional education path. These cases are assessed individually by the Director of Graduate Studies. [-]

We asked our students why they would recommend choosing American Studies at Kent. Here are their top five reasons: 1) The variety of modules to choose from, ranging from Literature, History, Politics, Film etc, and the seminars are relatively small in numbers. 2) The fact that it is a varied programme gives you a chance to meet many different American Studies Lecturers/staff, who are very helpful, approachable and looking out for our best interests... 3) ... and you learn to write essays in different styles, whether it be History, Literature or Politics. 4) It’s great, too, to have a choice of programme pathways, including History, Literature Or Latin American pathways. 5) And of course the choice of a year or semester abroad, with a huge variety of destinations is a perennial attraction. Oh, and we can’t count, so: 6) This is also quite a small centre, which allows lecturers/students to get to know one another. Location The School of History is based at the University of Kent's Canterbury campus. Called Durovernum by the Romans, Canterbury is a city steeped in history and as such makes a stimulating environment for anyone wishing to study the past. The green and leafy campus is situated on a hill overlooking the city, and is conveniently located for travel to both London and the continent. The resources available to undergraduates are also excellent. Historians gain access to a wealth of books, journals and other resources through the university's Templeman Library (which is home to over a million items, and the British Cartoon Archive), alongside privileged access to the Canterbury Cathedral Library and Archives. This represents an opportunity to work with a range of top-quality primary sources - such as the Cathedral's unique collection of medieval and early modern manuscripts. Entry Requirements Minimum 2.1 or equivalent in history or a relevant subject. In certain circumstances, the School will consider candidates who have not followed a conventional education path. These cases are assessed individually by the Director of Graduate Studies. [-]
