What will you learn

In today’s dynamic media-driven world, creativity and innovation are inseparably integrated into technology and globalisation. At Radboud University, we will help you develop a reflective, inquisitive and critical view of the creative industries and their relationship with ecology, climate, inclusion, democracy, and commercialism. We will ask you to look beyond the promise of authenticity, the cry for value, the quest for quality in the creative industries and dare to peek behind the curtain. We never lose sight of its core, the beating heart of the creative industries; the cultural product or event. That is why in every course, in every debate, our starting point is the aesthetical element. 

In the Master’s specialisation in Creative Industries, we have a strong focus on ecological and social sustainability. It’s about adding sustainable value and significance to the creative industries. But we also research how the diverse fields of the creative industries can work towards a sustainable future.
