  • Study in Liverpool, one of the leading arts and cultural centres outside of London (European Capital of Culture in 2008, UNESCO World Heritage Site)
  • Develop a broad-based understanding of how key institutions, social groupings, and different representations of cities mediate urban development and cultural distinctiveness

  • The course has established itself a strong track record and reputation of moving its MA graduates on to PhD research

This exciting new cross-disciplinary MA enables you to study contemporary UK and international cities from socio-economic, cultural, theoretical and practical perspectives.

You will gain an understanding of key urban theories, trends, policies and dynamics by drawing on a range of contemporary local and global case studies to illustrate debates and policy responses. You will reflect on how urban images and identities are constructed and reconstructed, by whom and for what purpose, focusing on concepts such as city marketing, place identity, place brand and branding.

The programme will enable you to play a key role in developing approaches to study and knowledge application in the fields of creativity and culture.

Career opportunities for graduates include positions in: culture, heritage and creative industries within urban environments, museums, community and voluntary sectors, cultural centres, city councils, festival organisation, charities, regeneration projects, marketing and communications, public relations, arts and cultural bodies, administration, management, funding management and monitoring, teaching, research and academia.
