Course summary

Overview

Rooted in cultural theory and analysis of the contemporary cultural industries, this course is designed for those who have previously studied courses in cultural studies, social sciences or arts management and creative industries. You'll examine the contested concepts of culture and creativity, and examine how policy makers, cultural organisations, and creative entrepreneurs are operating in contemporary cultures and economies on a global scale.

Due to the emphasis on academic discussion and policy analysis, this course is not primarily designed for those who wish to pursue a career in media, communications or related subjects, or those who wish to further their own artistic or creative practice. Such applicants are recommended to check the University of Leeds Coursefinder for courses suited to their particular skills, experience, interests and career goals.

Culture and creativity play a fundamental role in the development of individuals, societies, and economies worldwide. This course allows you to explore how arts and creative enterprises work in theory and practice, as well as the impact they can have on individuals and communities.

You’ll examine the relationship between the cultural industries and the arts, and explore how the cultural sector is managed by policy makers, cultural organisations, and creative entrepreneurs. Throughout, you’ll learn from researchers with extensive industry experience and have the freedom to investigate areas of personal interest.

Leeds has a thriving cultural scene, and is home to large-scale events like Leeds International Film Festival, Light Night, and Transform Festival. Our industry connections allow you to engage with local cultural organisations such as Leeds Playhouse, Opera North, Phoenix Dance Theatre, the BBC, the National Science and Media Museum, and East Street Arts.

Career opportunities

You’ll gain a variety of in-depth subject knowledge from this course, as well as valuable transferable skills such as cultural and social awareness, research, analysis and communication.

Our graduates have pursued a range of careers that reflect this diversity. They’ve joined international consultancy firms and social enterprises as research associates, become project managers in arts and cultural organisations or worked as policy managers and advisers within cultural policy bodies.

Others have gone on to work in public policy, urban regeneration, community development, teaching and more – and some have also set up their own businesses, either during or soon after the programme.

Many other graduates have continued with their research and progressed to PhD study
