More about Emma
What attracted you to MA Culture, Style and Fashion?
“I was attracted to the course because of the range of different topics that you get to study, and the variety of projects involved. The fact that there would be a focus on a number of different aspects of style culture ranging from social to ethical made the course a lot more appealing to me rather than if it just focused solely on fashion’s influence. Additionally, the career prospects were also an attractive part of the course.
“The course helps you to understand the meaning behind different trends relating to fashion and the other areas of culture. It allows you to look beyond the surface of the objects and trends of visual culture to find deeper meanings behind them.”
What do you enjoy most about the course?
“I enjoy the varied tasks that we get to complete and the interesting subject matter most, as we get to read a lot of interesting material related to the course. The course is very good if you want to understand style culture on an academic level and learn about what certain trends mean. It’s also good that we get to work independently.”
Can you tell us about your MA project?
“I am currently planning a slow journalism piece comprised of 1500 words relating to topics we have been learning about such as glamour and authenticity and the meaning of ‘coolness’ for Delayed Gratification magazine.”
How do you think this course will help you achieve your future career aspirations?
“I think that this course in particular is unique and the topics we learn about are interesting, and I feel that having built such good knowledge about the style culture through this course, it will be useful for the career that I want to pursue.”
