Overview

The MA in Consumption, Culture & Marketing is an interdisciplinary masters programme that draws together content and teaching from both marketing and sociology. It is aimed at individuals who want to think intellectually about the world, enjoy being challenged and are curious about business practice.

As such we seek to analyse marketing behaviour and consumption practices with a view to better understand how marketing connects with society and culture.... [-]
