The flexible, interdisciplinary nature of the MA meant that I could make choices about which modules to take as my knowledge and interest grew.

Main details

Year graduated 2019
Department Sociology

I was looking for an MA that would help me to begin a new career, without having a very clear idea of what that career might be and so the MA Creative and Cultural Analysis was a perfect choice for me as it really allowed this exploration.

I was drawn to the core modules which offered an introduction to new ways of thinking and great opportunities to follow my own interests.

The flexible, interdisciplinary nature of the MA meant that I could make choices about which modules to take as my knowledge and interest grew as opposed to having to choose a fixed course of study at the start of the year. As a result I ended up going in a direction I hadn't even considered prior to starting.

This MA gave me the skills and confidence I needed to embark on a career as a freelance researcher. It also allowed me to connect with a brilliant group of people, with lots of interesting conversations!
