Creative and Cultural Industries (Subject to approval)

Queen Margaret University


This BA (Hons) Creative and Cultural Industries course will give you the expertise to succeed in a wide variety of careers. You will learn about the creative and cultural industries landscape and develop the critical thinking and content creation skills that will set you up for a career in the exciting and thriving creative and cultural sectors.

Creativity and culture play a vital role in our daily lives. Each day we engage in, or with, creativity and culture in some regard – uploading content to social media, going to the theatre, watching a TV show, attending a festival, or visiting a museum or gallery. Somewhere, at some point, a team of people conceived, produced, managed, and shared that creativity for us to experience. These people work in the creative and cultural industries.

This course will encourage you to think critically about creativity and culture – what it is, and how, when, where and why it is produced and consumed. It will provide you with an in-depth understanding of the creative and cultural sectors and how they are shaped by other factors – such as technology, economics, cultural shifts, and crisis. With creative production and industry engagement intrinsic to the course, it will provide you with the industry networks and knowledge and practical creative production skills you need to become one of the creative leaders and producers of the future.
