This course provides you with the understanding and skills needed to sustain a career in the global creative industries. In a rapidly changing world of technology and global politics, it lays bare the foundations and commonalities of human creativity. It provides opportunities for you to put your knowledge into practice; in partnership with an established enterprise or based on your own initiative.

In your first year you will begin to explore how the global creative industries function and what makes them distinctive from other parts of the economy. You will explore case studies that speak to the social, economic, political and cultural impacts of cultural and creativity activity, and consider how creative industries has developed in different global contexts.

In year two, you will focus on policy and creative enterprise. You will consider how the creative industries are supported, valued and regulated by different governments around the world and work to develop your own policy proposals. You will also work with an external partner organisation to understand their business and solve a business problem on their behalf.

By your final year, you’ll have considerably more independence. You will work to complete a final year project that brings together your learning from previous years and is embedded in current best practice.

Across each level of study you will also take modules to help develop your skills in research and for employability in your preferred areas of the creative industries, to ensure you are ready to make the most of the opportunities as a University of Leeds graduate.

Throughout the course you’ll have the option to take optional modules to gain a wide range of experiences and develop specialist skills in managing festival, arts marketing, visual cultures, and more.
