Cultural Studies is an exciting interdisciplinary programme which offers you an insight into cultural practices, histories and meanings. You’ll learn to look at film, history, literature, philosophy and visual culture in new ways and apply different theories of culture to issues of gender, race, class and media among others. You’ll combine core and optional modules to build your understanding of cultural analysis while gaining specialist knowledge on topics that suit your interests. If you have little or no knowledge of Russian, this degree will allow you to learn the language from scratch while gaining an insight into Russian culture, history and politics. Core modules will develop your speaking, reading, listening and writing skills and you’ll spend your second year studying in Russia to improve them. You’ll also be introduced to Russian culture and literature and choose from a wide range of optional modules exploring topics that suit your interests.
