Course content

Creative work is recognised by governments around the world as a crucial driver of growth and creative entrepreneurs are changing the face of contemporary cultures and economies on an increasingly global scale. This one-year taught Masters programme provides the perfect opportunity for you to explore these transformations while developing your own interests in creative practice, policy and management.

Our core modules provide a rigorous academic grounding in the cultural and creative industries, focusing in depth on arts management, cultural policy, creative entrepreneurship and the role of culture in development. You will benefit from privileged access to world-leading academics and have regular opportunities to learn first-hand from the School’s cultural and creative partners.
Specialist optional modules will provide opportunities for you to work in and with creative organisations on live projects, developing your contacts and employability skills; and a final, large-scale research project will allow you to develop your interests according to your own experience and career ambitions.
