Creative Arts Undergraduate Study

The BA in Creative Arts at SOAS is designed for students wishing to develop a critical and theoretically informed approach to the arts and the cultural industries.

Students will be introduced to a wide range of thematic and theoretical issues, and will have the opportunity to develop practical skills in radio, curating, film festivals and musical performance both within taught modules and assignments.

Both theoretical and practical in orientation, this interdisciplinary degree gives insight into the varied forms of artistic expressions of Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
