WHY THIS PROGRAMME
You will be taught by the world leading teams in the Centre for Cultural Policy Research and the Adam Smith Business School. Frequent invited speakers will provide current industry insights from across the sector.
Glasgow offers an ideal environment for students studying the Creative and Cultural Industries. It is a culturally vibrant city, with thriving music, theatre, and visual art scenes, and the greatest concentration of creative industries in Scotland.
The taught element of this programme consists of six core courses, totalling 100 credits, and a slot in semester 2 in which you can take 1 or 2 course/s of your choice (totalling 20 credits). This structure allows you to develop key sector knowledge and management skills, while also providing space to tailor the programme to suit your interests and ambitions. You can choose two 10 credit options from a range offered by the Adam Smith Business School, strengthening the management component of your degree. Alternatively you can select a 20 credit option from another subject area.
The teaching on the two largest core courses, Creative Industries and Cultural Policy (semester 1) and Contemporary Cultural Production (semester 2) is supported by a series of regular guest lectures, in which we invite practitioners, policy makers and key influencers from across the creative sector to share their perspectives.
Assessment is based primarily on individual written essays and assignments but also involves presentation. You will undertake academic research essays and report writing tailored to an industry brief, ensuring you develop a range of writing skills relevant to both academic and professional contexts. Please note that there are no work placement or internship elements on this programme.
In the summer period (April to August), you will complete a research dissertation (worth 60 credits) that will enable you to develop, investigate and present a substantial and original project of personal interest. The academic team within the Centre for Cultural Policy Research have extensive experience of conducting empirical studies within the creative sector, and are thus able to support a wide range of industry and policy related topics and research approaches.
Semester 1 core courses (totalling 60 credits) Semester 2 courses (totalling 60 credits) Semester 2 optional courses (subject to availability) Summer (April - August)
