MA Media and Creative Enterprise

Course Description


The course is designed to help students understand the environment and the practices for cultural entrepreneurship, and in completing their studies students will be able to develop their own creative initiatives for research, practice or consultancy activities within the cultural industry sector.

The course takes a critical approach to investigating the realities of working in the cultural sector, as an aspect of the cultural ecologies research at the Birmingham Centre for Media and Culture Research.

Previous students have gone on to work in marketing and in social media for companies such as England Athletics. They have also created their own businesses or freelance creative consultancies.


Many modules make significant use of new social media, and students will be asked frequently to contribute to fora, write blogs, or produce podcasts to chart personal and professional development. They will also examine and comment on the work of their peers.
