Goldsmiths, University of London

Course Introduction

This programme allows you to develop the leadership skills to commercialise on your creative and cultural practices and/or knowledge. It allows you to build on a historical and theoretical understanding of cultural and creative industries and the development of a cultural economy to create your own creative initiatives, which might be research'based, policy'based, practice'based, or a combination of any or all of these. This programme will be taught in partnership by a number of departments within Goldsmiths and with key individuals and organisations in the creative and cultural industries sector. Our collective approach is to integrate entrepreneurship within the development of creative practices and to take a ‘creative’ approach to the development of new businesses and the infrastructure that supports them.

Course Modules

All students take Theories of Capital, and Enterprising Leadership and then choose an internship placement. Attendance is mandatory for all taught sections of the programme. To encourage collaborative learning we try to teach all students together wherever possible, irrespective of their particular pathway. Please note that due to staff research commitments not all modules may be available every year.
