Culture Industry (MA)


Course Description

Our MA in Culture Industry will allow you to explore the interface between contemporary economics and culture, from the scale of a start-up or artwork to that of governmental policy, a city, or the global marketplace.- http://www.gold.ac.uk/pg/ma-culture-industry/

Taking full advantage of the UK’s leading role in the creative industries, and London’s status as a world city, this course creates opportunities for you to:

do placements
make projects
go on field trips
meet leading creative practitioners and theorists
This will give you first-hand experience of the fast moving creative economy.

Teaching team

A collaboration between the Department of Media and Communications and the Centre for Cultural Studies, the teaching team includes Professor Scott Lash, Professor Angela McRobbie, and Dr Josephine Berry.

Engage with the cultural sector

Within the accelerated climate of digital networks and globalisation, the forms and behaviour of culture are mutating, converting the workshop into the handheld device and the cinema and gallery into the bedroom. This course is aimed at creative practitioners, entrepreneurs and theorists wanting to experiment with these changes, and set them into a historically and discursively rich framework.

Through participant observation, critical theory, and playful experiment, the course will not just prepare you for a career in the cultural sector, but help you to engage with it imaginatively, critically and tactically.

Placements

Students on the Culture Industry MA have secured placements at the BBC, Stephen Graham Gallery, White Cube gallery, SHAPE Arts, Chinatown Oral History Project, Maximum Rock n Roll, the British Council, Black Dog Publishing, Resonance FM, Glasgow Biennale, London Architecture Week, Glastonbury Festival, London Film Festival, the British Museum, South Bank Centre, Grizedale Arts, the Japan Foundation, the London Anime and Gaming Con, and Sound and Music.

(Student Profile)

Ho Kyung Moon

166.gif Although I took a postgraduate course in the history of art in Korea and had professional experience in the arts sector, particularly in museums, I always felt I still had a lot to learn.

When I participated in a project to turn the original form of Korea's unique history into digital contents and make them available to the cultural industry, I started to develop a different perspective and seek insights into how to focus better on management and business in cultural and creative industries. Therefore, I chose MA Culture Industry as my new subject.

Actually, I received a couple of offers from other universities, so it was difficult for me to decide on my destination. To make the best decision, I spent time listening to not only a lot of Koreans who had experience of studying in the UK, but also the British who are familiar with the UK education system. Then, finally, I made up my mind, since I thought the research-oriented academic atmosphere of Goldsmiths would suit me.

I have really enjoyed my MA programme, although a lot of the materials we have to read every week are demanding. I am completely satisfied with my course, since it not only introduces students to theoretical knowledge of the culture industry, but encourages them to broaden their horizons with a critical and practical approach and response to the arts and culture.

After graduating I would like to run my own business. My hope is to specialise in the arts, particularly cultural management and business. I wish to apply a variety of management techniques and principles to the specific Korea-related circumstances in the arts and cultural sector, which will enhance the mutual arts exchange between Korea and the global community. In this sense, my MA programme will be very helpful for me to acquire the ability.
