Global changes have shifted the emphasis to knowledge economies based on design and innovation. Our programme, which focuses on Creative and Cultural Industries, is designed to produce graduates who can function as managers in the creative and cultural industry sector both nationally and internationally.
By sharing classes with students from practice-oriented classes in art, design, music and media, you’ll also, crucially, gain a practical sense of creative practitioners, and their values, motivations and culture.

On graduation, you’ll be able to look into, understand, and work between professionals involved in creative development and those responsible for commercialising the results.

In Year 1, you’ll take a series of core modules as well as one module from each of the following four areas: Art and Design, Music and Drama, Media, and Languages.

In Year 2, you’ll develop a more critical approach to the theory of cultural industries and continue to develop your skills in the practical area of managing a cultural enterprise. You’ll also take modules from Art and Design, Music and Drama, Media and one module from either Languages or one of the above areas.

In Year 3, the emphasis in the first semester will be on developing your knowledge and skills in managing the complex relationship that all cultural enterprises have with the state, mass media, general public and funding agencies. You’ll also take advanced modules in Art, Design, Media, Language and Music. In Semester 2, you can complete a practical industry project through a work placement or write a dissertation on a topic in the area of creative and cultural industries.
