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.

Working with, and feeding into, learning networks beyond the University, we aim to influence and inform the emerging and developing communities of professional, activist, creative and research practice around Visual Cultures. We champion creative and activist practices as both methods of engagement and as subjects of enquiry, drawing on our 130 year history of experimental and progressive attitudes to art and design through our origins as the Hornsey College of Art. Course highlights: - World-class teaching and research from leading Visual Cultures academics, activists, artists, curators and practitioners across the Art & Design Research Institute (ADRI) and Lansdown Centre for Electronic Arts (LCEA) - State of the art facilities including the latest digital resources, a range of new and traditional equipment and specialist archives and collections - Direct access to London's art and design world and cultural industries including galleries, museums, organisations, artists, libraries and collections - Part-time and low-residency options established to meet the needs and ambitions of individual students and to embed your learning within your existing networks and practice - Off-site networking and exhibition opportunities with a range of London-based, UK-wide and international partners - As a student of this course you'll receive a free electronic textbook for every module.
