MPhil/PhD in Cultural Policy Studies/Creative Industries/Media and Communication

Cultural policy is an interdisciplinary field characterised by a diversity of subjects and research methods. As a research student at the Centre you will be expected to make an original contribution to the field by critically reviewing existing knowledge and by challenging current assumptions (including your own). Your research should be a personal journey which engages with issues and ideas you feel are significant and which are challenging and relevant to those working in the cultural sector. As part of your programme of study, you may wish to participate in taught modules on the Centre’s three MA programmes.
