Arts, culture and media


Where better to study arts, culture and media than in London, home to major cultural organisations including the British Film Institute, British Museum, Shakespeare’s Globe theatre and more. King’s offers a stimulating range of courses covering everything from film, visual arts, theatre and performance, to music, digital humanities and culture, media and creative industries. It’s an exciting place to engage on an intellectual level with arts, culture and media in all their forms.

Our arts, culture and media courses explore questions such as what is big data and why is it significant? What does our interaction with the digital world tell us about the evolving human condition and what techniques can we use to understand it? And where do the boundaries lie between content, art and entertainment in an increasingly digital world? From composing to curating and commentating, our arts culture and media courses provide a rich variety of modules that will help you to explore the modern creative landscape.
