If you have 3rd year bachelor students interested in Social Media and 
studying in London, please point them towards the MA in Social Media at 
the University of Westminster. The programme focuses on the theoretical, 
critical and practical skills of social media research and use.

Thank you. Christian Fuchs

The MA in Social Media offers a flexible interdisciplinary exploration 
of key contemporary developments in the networked digital media 
environment. It will benefit those seeking to develop their 
understanding of contemporary communication and its societal, political, 
regulatory, industrial and cultural contexts.

The MA in Social Media provides students with the opportunity to focus 
at postgraduate level on:
* Studying the ways in which social media and the Internet shape and are 
shaped by social, economic, political, technological and cultural 
factors, in order to equip students to become critical research-oriented 
social media experts.
* Developing reflective and critical insights into how social media and 
the Internet are used in multiple contexts in society, and into which 
roles social media can play in various forms of organisations that are 
situated in these societal contexts. The aim is that students are 
equipped to become reflective and critical social media practitioners.
* Gaining in-depth knowledge and understanding of the major debates 
about the social and cultural roles of social media and the Internet.
* Acquiring advanced knowledge and understanding of the key categories, 
theories, approaches and models of social media's and the Internet's 
roles in and impacts on society and human practices.
* Obtaining advanced insights into practical activity and practice-based 
work that relate to how social media and the Internet work and which 
implications they have for social and cultural practices.
