CMCI is so unique in its offering of cultural studies, media studies, and creative industries all in one! In breadth and depth, we could go from analysing queer representation in films, to exploring the business models of large media conglomerates, to discussing arts management. The degree has critically changed the way I understand the creative industries, with so many theoretical lenses to choose from.
