Course content

The Master’s specialisation in Creative Industries focuses on the artistic product and the tension between creativity and commerce. You will study our (post-)industrial society as a cultural phenomenon. The programme explores the wonderful new world where high fashion interacts with technological gadgets; where tourists discover a town’s cultural highlights with an app as a guide. The programme takes a strong focus on culture and partners with a number of cultural organisations in the Nijmegen area. As a student, you will have hands-on assignments in order to help develop your practical skills.

If you want to contribute to the development of the young, dynamic and most certainly expanding creative sector, then this Master’s specialisation is for you.
