Department of Culture & Creative Industries

Based in the heart of London, one of the most dynamically creative cities in the world, the Department of Culture and Creative Industries provides a rich and thriving academic environment in which to study one of the fastest-growing sectors of the global economy. We undertake world-leading research into many aspects of the international creative economy, and regularly advise organisations such as UNESCO and the Department of Culture, Media and Sport on matters of cultural policy.

This research expertise consistently informs our outstanding teaching. Our MA in Culture, Policy and Management is the longest established programme of its kind in the UK, with a near forty-year history and a network of alumni in prestigious cultural management positions around the world. Our MA programmes in Publishing, International Publishing and Creative Writing and Publishing are delivered in close collaboration with several prestigious publishers, which contributes to the very high percentage of our graduates now employed in that sector. Our newer MA in Translating Popular Culture is a unique programme that combines cutting-edge research with a range of professional translation skills in relation to popular culture.

We also have a dedicated Centre for Creative Writing, taught by some of the UK's leading writers, which brings eminent authors from around the world to support the creative work of students on its various MA programmes.

Our MPhil/PhD Cultural Policy & Management programme offers students the chance to develop their research agenda and transferable skills working with world leading experts in cultural policy and creative industries.

Our new undergraduate BA in Cultural and Creative Industries is the first of its kind in the UK, but is already recruiting high-achieving students from around the world, as well as forming the basis of a number of significant international partnerships (most recently with the Shanghai Theatre Academy).
