City offers MA programmes in Culture, Policy and Management and Global Creative Industries as well as an MPhil /PhD in Culture and Creative Industries
Our research is critical, analytical and often intentionally interventionist. It intends to make a difference to the development and practice of current cultural discourse and institutions and our research is often targeted at, or commissioned by, public bodies.
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 pioneering new MA Global Creative Industries allows you to gain a strong knowledge of the creative industries and its evolution as a force to globally empower economic and social development.
Our PhD offers students the chance to develop their research agenda and transferable skills working with world leading experts in cultural policy and creative industries.
