Course content

This innovative and interdisciplinary programme is aimed at students who have an interest in developing a career in the cultural sector.

The programme allows you to develop an understanding of the evolution of cultural industries in a global context by focusing on the global dissemination of cultural products, transnational cultural interactions in the creative sector, and cultural diversity and individual creativity in the globalised world.

This programme will provide you with insights into global cultural industries and into cultural policy, while also allowing you to analyse case studies which span the UK, China, Japan, Latin America, North America and Europe and equips you with the theoretical tools to analyse the cultural products that you are learning about.

This MA is delivered by the School of Modern Languages, which is home to researchers with a wide range of interests in contemporary culture, including film, literature, theatre, music, graphic novels, photography, cultural festivals, and museums. Their combined global expertise will help you develop your own interests in a supportive and friendly environment. The programme also benefits from regular guest lectures from representative of the creative and cultural industries.
