Bachelor of Arts (with Honours) - BA (Hons)
The creative industries are a major UK success story. Together film, television, theatre, games and music contribute £110 billion to the national economy every year. These industries are always on the look-out for talented graduates with business skills to continue the UK's growth as it develops new international partnerships and enters new creative markets across the globe.
Drawing on our expertise and our extensive industry contacts, with teaching that intersects with production-oriented activities, you'll develop the experience required to successfully initiate, drive and manage creative projects and businesses in this exciting area. You can explore your own creative potential - on screen, stage, or in interactive media - while acquiring the knowledge of leadership, marketing, finance and the law that is in high demand in creative sectors across the UK and the world.
You'll graduate with the expertise to become a creative business leader ready to work with talented actors, writers, directors and designers. Your possible career paths may include becoming a producer, TV or film commissioner, or event programmer, or working in advertising or marketing and distribution within the creative industries.
Assessment methods vary according to modules and include practical exercises, presentations, essays, scripts, project proposals, strategy documents, reports, exams, blogs and in some cases production work.
Most modules will have formative assessments which do not count towards your final work but help guide your progression.
In most cases you will assessed individually. The collaborative nature of the creative industries however means that some of your modules will involve group work. In these you will be assessed on work that you have produced as a team, as well as on your individual contribution to the project.
Careers and skills
We will equip you to develop a career in a range of creative production areas: screen, stage, games, festivals, public events, and more. You will learn several key skills, such as techniques for managing large-scale projects, budgeting and fundraising, distribution and marketing strategies, negotiation methods and you'll acquire knowledge of legal and regulatory issues relating to the creative industries. You'll learn this while exploring your own potential as an entrepreneur, to not only run but initiate new creative work, and find the next business opportunity in still untapped areas of digital media.
We expect graduates of this degree to become the creative entrepreneurs of the future, contributing to Britain’s world-leading reputation for delivering high quality arts and entertainment.
