Cultural and Creative Industries

The creative economy is one of the most vibrant and culturally diverse industry sectors in the world. New audiences and new modes of delivery across all types of media make for a dynamic global cultural landscape.

Producing ground-breaking work that supports the understanding, analysis and growth of this exciting and ever-changing creative sector is at the core of our research. We work closely with industry partners across all formats and around the globe to engage and innovate with real-life scenarios and projects.

Research and activities 

Our department is the primary partner of the Institute for Screen Industries Research, the first research institute in a leading UK university to be specifically designed to foster close collaboration between academic research and screen industries.

We routinely collaborate with leading studios (Fox, Warner, Weta, etc), production companies (Red Bee Media, BBC, Skywalker Sound), and manufacturing and technological development companies (Dolby, EFilm, etc) across the world. We also participate in scholarly activities and engage in government, research council and industry funded projects

Postgraduate study

Our vibrant network of students, scholars and industry partners make studying with us a great opportunity to develop first-class research projects, to foster relationships with related industries and to access research resources often unavailable elsewhere.

The Institute for Screen Industries Research helps deliver an MA programme in Film, Television and Screen Industies, as well as supervising relevant doctoral projects.

We welcome enquires from prospective postgraduates who are interested in research within the field of cultural and creative industries. You can find out more about the opportunities available by consulting the online prospectus.
