Understanding the field that is buzzing with creativity: where art meets commerce, and where culture generates innovation and social cohesion.
High fashion and nerdy technology? Tourism and literature? Perhaps not the likeliest combinations, but nowadays they turn out to be highly complementary. If you want to know how and why, Creative Industries might just be the right Master's programme for you.

The creative sector has grown into a proper industry: companies and social institutions borrow ideas from artists and designers, the tourist industry happily uses literary concepts in their marketing, and classical music, art and museums play a large role in city branding. In the Creative Industries programme, which is unique to the Netherlands, these developments are evaluated critically from a historical and theoretical perspective.

During the programme you will study the (post)industrial society as a cultural phenomenon. The case-studies you will work with include the fashion-industry, new media and the role of images, and the tourist industry. You will also analyse themes such as creativity and the so-called '21st Century Skills' in policy-making and education, and how cultural heritage can be effectively incorporated in today's 'participation society'.
