The Cities, Culture and Creativity program offered by Liverpool John Moores University enables you to study contemporary UK and international cities from socio-economic, cultural, theoretical and practical perspectives.
Based in Liverpool - the scene of many innovative cultural programmes and urban regeneration initiatives, this programme focuses on the relationships between cities, culture and creativity. It features an innovative, multidisciplinary curriculum taught by expert academics.
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.
On graduation you will understand the development of urban environments and will be able to interpret place-making for a wide variety of purposes. For those who prefer a holistic approach to understanding cities - including social, economic, cultural and local historians, geographers, art historians, planning specialists, media practitioners, film-makers and journalists - this programme will inform your practice and deepen the range of your output.
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.
