The creative sector has grown into a proper industry that takes its main ideas from art and culture: companies borrow ideas from artists and designers, the music industry makes use of new technology to reach out to fans, and art and museums play a large role in city branding. The fashion industry has proven that creativity and commerce fit together effortlessly, but this development needs to be evaluated critically from a historical and theoretical perspective.
The Master's programme in Creative Industries provides the tools to do just that, within the context of Cultural Studies.
A Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent, from a research university) in a related field to Creative Industries: preferably Cultural Studies, or a Bachelor of Arts with at least 45 EC in Art History, Cultural Studies and/or Cultural Policy.
