MA Program in Cultural Analysis and Social Theory (CAST)

The CAST program has been designed to further the interests of those students whose research and academic interests extend beyond the boundaries of single disciplines in science or humanities programs.

CAST focuses on analyzing culture and theorizing the social from an interdisciplinary and a multidisciplinary perspective, and brings together faculty with interdisciplinary and social science backgrounds, and theoretical and methodological commitments to the creative and critical ways of exploring reality that cultural analysis constitutes.

Many of the core faculty currently engage in interdisciplinary research and share an interest in theories and projects that cross traditional disciplinary boundaries. Our focus on cultural analysis reflects the diversity of our collective expertise within and across disciplines that engage in a variety of methods for analyzing cultural forms, processes, objects and institutions.
