The career paths of creative professionals are often unconventional. That same imaginative, out-of-the-box drive that makes your work, art, and projects exceptional can also make it challenging to position your work in a professional context. This leaves many creative types wondering: Can I have a stable career that is truly creativity-driven?

Fortunately, career-focused MA courses like the ones offered at Falmouth can provide you with the tools you need to make the answer to this question a definite, “Yes!” Career stability and security does not have to come at the cost of your creative freedom if you develop this creativity, strategically.

Career development is crucial, and success in this arena often requires guidance and support. However, it is especially important for creatives to receive this support from people and institutions who understand that artistic license and creative freedom are defining features of this success. Falmouth’s flexible learning courses centre on hands-on projects that allow students to put their own ideas into action, while at the same time benefiting from the professional insights of staff with exceptional industry experience. Furthermore, the flexible format of an online Masters degree means students can study with minimal disruption to their other ongoing creative projects.

Falmouth helps you build a stable foundation for your creative career.

An Online Masters Degree Gives Your Creativity an Edge

Regardless of what medium, subject, or industry drives your work, it is likely that your creativity has the potential to be expressed in a way that provides solutions to pressing problems. For example, “There’s an app for that” has become something of a 21st century proverb, and pursuing a software Application Development degree—like that offered at Falmouth—is a practical way to incorporate your creative endeavours into a structure that can be monetised and used to demonstrate the real-world importance of your work. Or, if you have a strategic, big-picture artistic drive, an MA programme in Creative Events Management or Advertising Strategy & Planning could provide an avenue to increase the impact of and the return on your creative efforts at the same time.

Creativity and strategy are complementary in Falmouth Flexible MA courses.

Learning online might seem like a necessarily isolated process, but it doesn’t have to be. Through Falmouth’s online flexible learning courses, students can benefit from each other’s complementary areas of knowledge. For instance, in an online MA in Application Development programme, a classmate with stronger programming knowledge may benefit from his or her colleague’s artistic insight, while another more business-minded student could help keep monetisation at the forefront. All Falmouth courses are designed to provide students with a comprehensive perspective on the technical and strategic components of their discipline, and the creative contributions of all students help ensure a rich course experience without sacrificing the career-oriented programme structure. Gaining educational experience where career and creativity are complementary, not conflicting, is the first step toward reaching that balance between creative freedom and career stability that once seemed so elusive.
