Goldsmiths' campus is packed with so many varying personalities and backgrounds, giving insight to broad contexts in both classroom and friendly discussions.

Main details

While pursuing my Undergraduate degree in Anthropology at the University of West Indies, Mona Campus in Kingston, Jamaica, I was directed to Goldsmiths as a school renowned for Culture Studies. I did my research to find a Masters course that felt most fitting for where I wanted to take my interests. With a background in Anthropology and work experience in Jamaican Cultural and Creative Industries, the MA in Culture Industry at Goldsmiths was the best overall fit allowing me to look at these Industries through a theoretical lens rather than mostly practical.

My time here has been interesting, to say the least. Goldsmiths' campus is packed with so many varying personalities and backgrounds, giving insight to broad contexts in both classroom and friendly discussions. In the future, I expect this degree to supplement my continued interest and work in the Cultural Industries wide, particularly in writing about them.
