Course content

Think you’ve got what it takes to succeed as a creative entrepreneur? Based in Southampton Solent University’s own on-campus creative agency, this master’s programme is ideally suited to savvy graduates who are looking to make their mark in the creative industries. If you have ever thought about setting up your own creative enterprise or working as a freelancer, this intensive course will help you develop the essential skills required to succeed.

The tutoring team on Southampton Solent University’s MA Creative Enterprise programme believe that the best way to learn freelance and enterprise skills is to get involved with real commercial projects.

Our established industry links and on-site creative agency provide students with access to these projects, where they will be expected to take full responsibility for managing the client, communicating successfully and delivering projects to budget. Past students have even had the opportunity to pitch for paid work as part of the course.
