Course Summary

Our MA Creative Enterprise: Film allows you to combine your passion for the arts with studies in law, management and entrepreneurship.

On the film pathway, you’ll learn filmmaking skills, explore debates about style and meaning, and develop your understanding of industry trends and practices.

This MA programme is a collaboration, taught by three world-renowned schools at the University of Reading – the School of Arts and Communication Design, Henley Business School and the School of Law. You will be based in the department of Film, Theatre and Television, situated at the heart of the University’s Whiteknights campus.

The film pathway is ideal for those looking to develop a career as a filmmaker, creative producer, film programmer, or in the creative industries more generally. From the start of your studies you will engage with key critical ideas about film art, while modules on entrepreneurship and management prepare you for professional work in this dynamic and creative field. To complete your studies, you will either write a dissertation or produce a short film.

The facilities and culture at our Minghella Studios are ideally suited to the MA Creative Enterprise; here you will be encouraged to collaborate, explore and experiment, and learn from prestigious scholars as well as experienced industry professionals.


The MA Creative Enterprise is designed to improve the skills and employability of people passionate about the arts. Graduates of the programme will be in a strong position to pursue start-up opportunities on their own, take managerial roles in the creative sector, or embark on further scholarly research into the arts and creative industries.
