The University of Westminster's new MA in Social Media will welcome its first students in September 2013. The course leaders are Professors Christian Fuchs and Graham Meikle, who will each be teaching core modules and working closely with students on their MA dissertations and creative research projects.

"We’ll be using social media in order to explore theories and concepts," said Professor Meikle. "Students will be blogging about course readings, posting online videos about ideas from their modules, sharing photo essays. It’s a rigorous theoretical degree and also an exciting and creative course."

Commenting on the new MA, Geoffrey Davies, Head of the Department of Journalism and Mass Communication, said "I'm very excited that we are adding this course to our excellent portfolio and have attracted such stellar names to teach on it. We already have postgraduates taking senior positions in social media and we can now equip them with an even greater knowledge."
