Course overview

The Department of Media, Communications and Cultural Studies at Goldsmiths is at the forefront of developments in cultural theory and practice in the UK.

For more information about study abroad options with the Department of Media, Communications and Cultural Studies, please contact Gholam Khiabany

As a study abroad student, you will choose from a selection of either 15 or 30 credit modules to add up to either 60 credits for one term or 120 credits for a full year. You are expected to undertake a full module load for your period of study.

Bear in mind that the difficulty of modules increases with the level of study. However, this doesn’t mean that you have to be in the same year at your home university as the level of study you undertake.

Undergraduate students are free to choose modules from all three years if you meet the pre-requisite(s) listed in the module description; however, you should be aware that Goldsmiths undergraduate students in Year 2 and Year 3 of their degree have already taken a significant number of modules in that department.
