What is this programme about?

MA Design for Cultural Industries is an innovative programme for students who want to develop their career in cultural and creative sectors. Through the application of design theory and practice, incorporating new technologies into the discourse, students will be able to create or initiate solutions and experiences in the context of the cultural industries.

This MA programme provides its graduates with the advanced skills necessary to confront their professional challenges and move forward in this highly competitive industry. Integrating materiality and object interpretation through applied imagination, developing innovative creative-thinking, enterprise skills and research-led projects, the programme's multidisciplinary and critical approach gives students a distinctive insight into the collaborative nature of these industries.

The programme is relevant for those wishing to pursue an advanced career in cultural and creative organisations such as private and social enterprises, design agencies, museums, galleries and research centres. The programme will also be applicable to artists, curators, designers and policy-makers wishing to advance their design thinking by bringing their own projects to life, or create outputs for their own clients and industry partners.

Graduates of the MA Design for Cultural Industries will be equipped with advanced skills to go to wide range of leadership or senior creative roles in the cultural and creative industries, both in the private and public sector. With an international outlook, our graduates will be sought after across an array of arts, design, events, culture, entertainment, media and creative technology departments globally.

The career paths that our graduates can look forward to include arts and cultural management, design management, policy making, curatorship (museum, gallery, festival), creative direction, education advisory, cultural publishing and art/design criticism. Alternatively, the programme can inspire graduates to open their own cultural start-ups or work for international consultancy firms. Graduates of the programme can also develop academic profiles and research interests to go into teaching or advanced study at MPhil and PhD level.

This programme is unlike many other Master's programmes as it places much more emphasis on original research and the contribution to knowledge, than on taught courses: a major part of the award is based on the dissertation, which makes up two-thirds of the credits required. In this sense, it provides you with a more critical and rigorous exploration of your particular subject area than may be found in a more vocationally orientated Master's programme.

The taught courses support your research: they introduce you to research design and methods, both quantitative and qualitative, appropriate to research in business and economics. At the heart of the programme is the learning contract between you and the research supervisor. The supervisor is an expert in your chosen area and will guide you through the process of: defining the aims of your research project, and its expected deliverables; outlining a suitable programme of work, monitoring its realisation, and helping you to keep your commitments; guiding you to obtaining ethical approval to realise your research programme, if your planned study requires it; identifying any further taught courses and training events (in addition to mandatory ones) to be attended in support of your research project. The supervisor is your first point of contact in the Faculty.

At the end of this degree, you may wish to register for a doctoral programme, since this MA provides a useful taster of research training and experience if you are considering this route.

Students are likely to be brilliant graduates in business or economics, or practising professionals who wish to return to academia and develop advanced research skills applicable to their area of expertise.

The aims of the programme are:

- To develop your research skills in business and economics

- To provide the foundation for future research at MPhil/PhD level.

This degree programme combines some of the coursework elements of a taught MA or MSc, with a longer Dissertation which, unlike taught Masters' programmes, must be started at the beginning of the programme.

Students must complete an appropriate taught course in Research Methodology, either in the history area or the policy area, and two other courses. The degree will be a key step on the career path of anyone wishing to pursue an academic career in maritime history, maritime policy, maritime commerce, or maritime defence and security studies. At the end of this degree, successful students may wish to register for a doctoral programme, since this MA provides a useful taster of research training and experience for those considering this route.

The aims of the programme are:

- To provide students who already have a clearly focussed research interest with the opportunity to complete a research-focused Master's degree in the minimum possible time

The market for postgraduate qualifications in logistics and supply chain management (SCM) has been growing rapidly.

This means that students are recognised by these professional bodies as holding their professional qualifications to full professional status level 6 upon completion of the Masters programme. Students participate in CILT and CIPS activities including the CILT student conference. Students will visit industrial locations, have seminars given by guest speakers from industry and collaborate with business partners for dissertation projects.

In the final stage of the programme, all students will undertake a one week consultant project organised by the university, which has been highly valued by previous students.

The aims of the programme are:

- To gain a systematic understanding of relevant knowledge about logistics and supply chain management

- To be able to apply relevant knowledge to a range of complex situations taking account of relationships and interaction with other areas of business or organisations within logistics and supply chain networks

- To obtain critical awareness of current issues in logistics and supply chain management and e-supply chain management which is informed by leading edge research and practice in the field.
