Course content

The Computing (games and entertainment) Pathway of the MA in Creative & Cultural Entrepreneurship allows you to develop the business/entrepreneurial skills and attributes to commercialise on your creative and cultural practices and/or knowledge. You'll be able to build on a historical and theoretical understanding of cultural and creative industries and the development of a cultural economy to create your own creative initiatives, which might be research-based, policy-based, practice-based, or a combination of any or all of these. The MA will be taught in partnership by a number of departments within Goldsmiths and with key individuals and organisations in the creative and cultural industries sector. Our collective approach is to integrate entrepreneurship within the development of creative practices and to take a ‘creative’ approach to the development of new businesses and the infrastructure that supports them.
What you study:

In all pathways, this Masters programme contains four taught courses and a further dissertation/portfolio component.

All students take courses I and III, and Computing Pathway students choose options in games and entertainment for courses II and IV. Attendance is mandatory for all taught sections of the programme.

To encourage collaborative learning we try to teach all students together wherever possible, irrespective of their particular pathway.
