Cultural and Creative Industries (CCI) is one of the fastest growing disciplines in the arts and humanities. CCI looks at the vast array of cultural and creative activities from a local to global perspective, with subject areas as diverse as media, fashion, tourism, museums, art galleries, publishing, sports, gaming, new technologies, and visual cultures. This minor explores how these activities form part of our cultures and ways of understanding. CCI is also about the nature of creativity and how that is an essential part of our lives; of how we use creativity in different ways to solve issues, come up with new ideas and approaches, and unsettle the way the world thinks. CCI can be defined as the liberal arts for the 21st century. Many of the traditional versions of the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences are being reshaped by the research and practices of the creative and cultural industries.
