What is an MA in Cultural Studies? These programs primarily serve students interested in specific cultures and their past and current development. Classes cover a variety of subjects and may include language studies, research methodology and literary analysis. Some courses might focus on a certain culture’s history and traditions, while others could look more closely at current language, governmental and economic issues. Classes may also delve into a culture’s important artistic mediums, including literature, music, theatre and cinema.
