Creative Industries and Cultural Policy

The creative industries are vital for economic activity, and the industry needs practitioners who can understand how policies stimulate the growth of the sector and play a part in our contemporary identity. This course seeks to aid students' comprehension and engagement with this sector. Students will assess the value of culture and creativity on a global scale, and to engage with public debate on related issues. Each student's mastery of existing theory will be developed and applied to understanding contemporary issues and contributing to current knowledge of the sector.

Entry requirements

We also welcome non-traditional applications, particularly from applicants with substantial professional or production experience. We therefore accredit prior experiential learning.

Assessment methods
