Advertising & the Creative Economy Masters (MA): Course features

What this course offers you

The programme harnesses the expertise of two of Kingston's faculties: you will study specialist modules with the Faculty of Art and Social Sciences, and business and entrepreneurial skills at Kingston Business School.

Collaborative work

You will work with students from other disciplines such as advertising, film making, fashion, design, music, publishing and museums, who will give you new perspectives on your own work, opening up new opportunities for collaboration and enhancing your own creative work. You will hone valuable workplace skills, including:

  • communication (oral, written and electronic);
  • time management;
  • data collation, review and synopsis;
  • computing; and
  • co-operation and teamwork.

Social media

All students are encouraged to create a blog and a Twitter account to advertise their areas of interest and share what they are creating. This creates an online presence and a learning community that can be accessed 24/7.

Research project

Your final piece of work will be an independent piece of research and development on any topic you choose, for which you will get one-to-one supervision. Some students take this as an opportunity to create a large piece of creative work; others choose to develop a product or launch their own business. The brief is extremely open-ended, giving you the opportunity to forge your own path in the areas that interest you most.

Kingston University and Boston University dual masters programme

If you are taking the dual degree, you will study a full-time masters programme at Kingston Business School during the autumn and spring semesters, then continue to Boston University to take another course in Boston over the following summer and autumn semesters.
