Cultural Studies offers an interdisciplinary approach to traditional humanities and social sciences, encouraging you to examine specific concerns, such as the construction of racial, gender, national, class, and sexual identities, issues of social change, and the experience of power.
You’ll study how different disciplines constitute knowledge and experiment with different approaches to knowledge production that may have more impact in the real world. For example, a student in a third-year documentary and docudrama course might submit a short essay and post an original film to YouTube in lieu of a typical research term paper.
As a Cultural Studies graduate from University of British Columbia, you will be an empowered critic and theorist of historical and contemporary cultural activities, and possess the ability to generate learning that influences society. You’ll be prepared to live in a world where writing, reading, coding, and decoding are employable skills in high demand. Work in marketing, advertising, publishing, or web design, or continue your education to pursue a career in law or social work.
