MA International Creative Enterprise

To help you feel prepared for your postgraduate studies, we’ve gathered together a range of course related activities including suggested reading, useful websites and some great things to do right now.

Course overview

This degree will prepare you to work, critique and create in the cultural industries. Covering a range of creative enterprises in an international context you’ll explore policies, philosophies, and practices. You’ll experience an extended placement in a world-class cultural organization as well as participating in an international field trip in the creative economy. You can follow pathways that play to your strengths and interests through critical work, employability, and creative practice.

Suggested reading

You’ll be given lots of information about which textbooks to read and introduced to the University Library, as well as the many ebooks we have for you to access, when you begin your studies in September. We don’t recommend rushing out to buy texts before you arrive. But if you can pick some up second hand, borrow from a library or access online, we suggest:

  • Introducing the creative industries: from theory to practice, by Rosamund Davies; Gauti Sigthorsson (2013)
  • The Routledge companion to the cultural industries, Kate Oakley; Justin O’Connor (2015)
  • Cultural Industries, David Hesmondhalgh (2019)
  • The creative industries: culture and policy, Terry Flew (2012)
  • Critical Practice: Philosophy and Creativity, Martin McQuillan, (2019)
