Course content

You will 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 is 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 modules and a further dissertation/portfolio component. All students take modules I and III, and Design Pathway students choose options in design for modules II and IV.

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

  • Module II: Creative Practice
  • Module III: Entrepreneurial Modelling
  • Module IV: Entrepreneurial Practices and Modes of Production within one creative industry sector
