Creative-Content Modules

A module is defined as a sequence of six courses consisting of varying combinations of required and elective courses in a discrete subject area. As a Creative Industries student you’ll select one module at the start of 1st year and a second at the start of 2nd year.  You’ll complete both modules at a rate of one course per semester. Delivered by the eight professional schools within the Faculty of Communication & Design, each module will cover the basic historical, theoretical and production aspects of a creative field while also examining how that field functions as a business. These modules will give you the opportunity to meet and participate in courses together with students specializing in each creative field.
