School of Arts Degree Programmes
The School of Arts offers a range of discipline-specific programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate level. For details, see the relevant departmental pages:
For students wishing to bridge these disciplinary boundaries we offer:
MA Arts of Asia and Africa
The MA Arts of Asia and Africa draws upon the unique strength of the School of Arts as a centre for the study of the art, music and media of Asia, Africa and the Middle East, and their global diasporas. Students select courses from across the school, developing a cross-discipline understanding of the arts. They have the option of specialising in a particular interdisciplinary field, such as popular music and film in the Middle East; art, archaeology and music of the Silk Road; or music, media and development in Africa.
MA Global Creative and Cultural Industries
The MA Global Creative and Cultural Industries offers students the opportunity to critically analyse the development of the creative and cultural industries in a fully global context, across the full range of School of Arts courses in Media, Music, Art and Archaeology. Students tailor their studies to focus on particular regions, art forms or themes. Alongside critical analysis and regional expertise, they are offered practical hands-on courses, in sound recording, podcasting and broadcasting, enabling them to enhance their skill-set.
