Faculty of the Creative Industries

Welcome Rod Pilling

Welcome to the Faculty of the Creative Industries. We are one of the three faculties within Southampton Solent University and are proud to offer such an interesting portfolio of courses ranging from animation to advertising, from film to fine art, and from popular music to psychology. 

There are many other exciting courses in the full list| and I know that you will enjoy exploring our web pages and discovering the diversity of opportunity that they offer.

Do take a good look through them on your way to the subjects closest to your heart. Take a glance, too, at our newest courses to see the innovation involved. They are typical of our dynamic approach to our work.  

We know from experience that these courses spark the imaginations of our students. We've designed them so that they do that. They are all creative; many of them are distinctive, and some unique.  

This faculty also has a long and proud tradition, with its origins 150 years ago in the Southampton School of Art. It has lasting values and a strong commitment to industry-focused education in the creative and communication industries. Many of our courses also have professional recognition and enable students to enter those industries and professions.  

I hope that you find in here what you are looking for and that you follow up your enquiry by joining one of our courses. If you need more information to help you make your decision please contact us and if you are able to visit us come to one of our open days so that you can gain an insight first-hand into what studying here is like.  

Come and meet us! We have an exciting team of more than a hundred experienced staff waiting to welcome you. We are confident that once you have met us you will want to join us!

Best wishes
Professor Rod Pilling
