Optional modules MA DCS

The MA Digital Culture and Society (MA DCS) requires students to take one compulsory taught module (taught over both semesters and worth 40 credits), a compulsory dissertation (worth 60 credits), and four optional modules (each worth 20 credits). Students thus accumulate the necessary 180 credits to pass the degree.

Normally part-time students would take the core taught modules and two optional module in year one and the two remaining optional modules and dissertation in year two. This should be discussed with the Course Director to take account of individual circumstances.
