Course summary

This course examines how we use culture as a force for human, social and economic development. Warwick's Centre for Cultural and Media Policy has expertly designed this programme to focus on ideas, critical thinking and research while enhancing your professional skills. This programme will give you the opportunity to explore the use of the arts and cultural approaches to local and global development challenges. It examines the impact of arts and culture in a range of contexts in ‘advanced’ and ‘developing’ countries across the world, with particular attention to innovations in cities, local districts, communities and creative enterprises. You will consider the strategy models and creative potential in using arts and culture within development contexts, and explore how they can be used to further social justice as well as economic growth. You will develop your vocational direction and capacity for active involvement in development projects in various parts of the world. This information is applicable for 2024 entry.
