Course content

This MA is for you if culture, technology, power and business excite and intrigue you.

You study cultural industries, institutions, texts, identities and practices from a critical perspective. You’ll explore the meaning of culture as politics and philosophy, and also:

  • explore cultural innovation, promotion and value in a fast-changing world
  • understand how business, technology and the law are redefining cultural practices today
  • gain professional skills needed by cultural and creative organisations in the private and public sectors.

You can also apply for placements. The vibrant city of Brighton & Hove is a hub for cultural, creative and activist enterprise.
