Special Electives
Creativity and Imagination In this module, you will explore the nature of creativity by encountering, experiencing and reflecting on a variety of creative practices. Topics explored may include such concepts as originality, influence, imagination, genre, the senses, trends (how to spot and start them) and design thinking. Drawing on this, you will develop your own project, exploring the theme of a change you want to see in the world. Creativity is a defining human characteristic valued in many fields. It is also one of our most puzzling concepts. Can anyone be creative? Is creativity something you have or something you do? Where does inspiration come from? How can we enjoy and learn from our ‘mistakes’?



You will also explore methods, processes and achievements of key creatives who changed the way we see the world. Examples will be drawn from across the realms of the arts, business, and wider society – both locally and globally.

Your work will be developed through both peer and tutor coaching with an opportunity to exhibit your projects to the wider Regent’s community. For assessment, you will submit a visual and/or textual presentation reflecting upon your own creative project and journey.

You will learn how to communicate more sensitively and understand more about how you are different from other people, and they from you. You will explore how to cope with change and uncertainty, and how to engage in self-care. You will practice listening, and ways of communicating openly, authentically and with empathy. Sessions will be experiential and problem-based, focusing as much on co-learning and improvement as success. You will learn collaboratively with your peers in the classroom through creative tasks and examples that are topical and relevant to you.
Future Cities Now Our cities are already busy reinventing themselves from the bottom up and, as they are the drivers of human ingenuity and social transformations, we need them now more than ever.



For over 6000 years, cities have been pulling us in with promises of adventure, independence, diversity and new ideas. Today more than half of humanity lives in cities, and this number is expected to reach three-quarters by 2050. But how will our future superorganism-like cities serve as sustainable and thriving socio-economic habitats?



This module provides a glimpse into the economic, political, cultural and technological forces reshaping our urban environments today. It reveals a positive trajectory for both people and planet; the enriching roles our local neighbourhoods play; the ways in which more flexible work patterns increase demand for urban experiences; the different ways in which our public spaces are opened up, rethought, and redesigned; and the exciting new forms of retail and food experiences heading our way.

You will be challenged to research your own choice of conspiracy theory or post-truth phenomenon and analyse its logical structure, discover its history and detect the stakeholders who are promoted or harmed by it.
Understanding Human Rights This module provides a practical approach to understanding human rights in everyday life and in the professional environment. You will develop transferable problem-solving and enquiry skills, thus enhancing your knowledge of the protection of human rights. By using case law and the rich data it provides, you will analyse and evaluate violations and discrimination, and develop skills to synthesise, understand and communicate the knowledge you acquire. While you learn, you will apply pre-defined human rights principles to real case studies, and enhance your interpersonal, team-working and networking skills through practical, creative in-class work and debates. The complexity of the subject will be addressed through the study of diverse cultural, professional and political environments. Comparative analysis of international and national human rights protection systems will lead you to study practices of the European, African and inter-American human rights courts.
Literary London This module will guide you through the complex, entertaining and diverse family of literature inspired by the city of London. The texts will serve as routes through which to explore the history of the city’s various districts, classes and communities. You will see how generations of authors have reinterpreted the British capital: from the social conflicts shown in Shakespeare’s plays, to the polluted industrial centre depicted by Dickens, to the multicultural hub celebrated by such authors as Selvon, Smith and Ali. The course explores the myriad of ways in which London has been imagined: as a den of vice, a triumph of civilisation and a theatre of dreams. As part of the process of contextualisation, material from domains such as history, sociology, the history of medicine and urban theory will be incorporated into your studies.

In this module, you will create a short drama and a short reportage piece, and apply your skills in order to understand and practice the roles therein.
Psychology of Emotions An emotion is defined as a complex reaction pattern that involves experiential, behavioural and physiological elements; it is a subjective and socially shared experience. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the ways in which people have expressed their emotions has changed as we have been forced to communicate virtually; the lack of contact with others and face-to-face experiences have impacted people, especially the youngest.



Human emotions have increasingly been expressed digitally through video calls, social media and online messages, and people have become less used to facial expressions. This has impacted on the development of emotions in childhood and emotional awareness in adolescence and adulthood, as well as verbal and non-verbal communication in the family context, and working and educational environments.

This module aims to introduce you to types of emotions, emotion development and theories, physiological changes, abnormal emotional processing, facial expressions and the use of emojis in virtual communication.
London as Fashion Capital London is a fashion icon. This module aims to serve as an introduction to London as a key fashion capital within the global industry. You will be introduced to key developments in the history of the city that led to its prominence in the international spotlight. By exploring several diverse areas and locations, you will learn how unique London is in its fashion geography, varied consumer base and wider appeal – examining its hotspots and leading style tribes as part of your studies. You will explore the strong interrelationships between London’s fashion and culture, art, design and creative scenes. You will explore why the city is unparalleled in its position as home to not only the world’s most exciting and dynamic emerging talent, but also to some of the world’s leading industry players. This module makes full use of London as a resource, and therefore much of the activity takes place outside of the classroom.
Emerging Technologies: from Web3 to the Metaverse This module aims to equip you with the knowledge and skills to deal with the rapid growth and change of technology and show how new and emerging technologies can be applied to different industries and business contexts. This module will consider the emerging technology landscape by covering technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, blockchain, internet of things (IoT) and metaverse applications and immersive technologies (VR & AR). You will understand technological trends, identify the opportunities and challenges that new and emerging technologies may bring and identify use cases and industries that could face disruption from new and emerging technologies.



The focus is not just introducing you to the emerging technologies but showing you how to examine the disruptions on various business models and functions, and how to identify opportunities for innovation. You will also examine the connections between technologies.
Digital Design with Adobe Creative Suite This module explores the use of digital design and desktop publishing, using Adobe’s industry standard suite of Creative Cloud applications. From editing and synthesising photographic imagery in Adobe Photoshop or creating computer-aided designs in Adobe Illustrator, to creating complex rich-media materials for print and multimedia in Adobe InDesign, this module will teach hands-on skills, encourage critical design thinking, and help you understand the use of media in a digital world. You will also explore intellectual property rights, fair usage, team-working and entrepreneurship – areas that are also fundamental to digital creativity.
The Power of Language in Your Life Language, and the way we use it, is vital to our understanding. This module explores the power of language and how it is infused throughout key areas of our lives by examining topics as diverse as love, politics, technology, crime and film. You will gain awareness of the key role language plays in our daily activities, from decoding advertisements and slogans, to using Google Translate and Alexa’s interface, protecting mental health and resolving geopolitical crises.
Working with a variety of materials, you will also be encouraged to think laterally and across disciplinary boundaries to explore and understand how to harness the power of language for your career and future.
Business Ethics This module introduces you to fundamental ethical issues in modern business. You will gain the critical thinking and decision-making skills that are necessary to successfully lead in business – skills that are also demanded by employers and society. You will examine ethical theory frameworks, for example utilitarianism and rights-based theory, and apply them to a variety of case studies that involve a diverse array of stakeholders (for example, consumers, employees, government and civil society). You will also explore the concept of corporate social responsibility and evaluate the various roles that business can adopt in diverse international contexts. You will collaborate with other students to engage in organised debates that will acquaint you with multiple perspectives on key issues, such as corporate governance, employee rights, consumer protection and environmental preservation. You will improve your leadership ability to provide sophisticated, well-reasoned justifications for your decisions, your actions and your strategies.
Experiencing Theatre Develop an enjoyment of theatre arts by going behind the scenes of theatre production. By understanding the mechanism of staging productions, from Shakespeare to musical theatre, you will start to appreciate the complexity of such collaborative projects, and begin to recognise the teamwork that realises them. Classroom activities will give you a taste of the discipline, intellectual demands and the craft and skills that shape a performance.

This is an opportunity to develop greater self-knowledge in expression, beginning in familiar territory and ending in an expanded sense of possibility.
How to deal with Uncertainty In this module, you will be introduced to theories and practical methods to predict futures, such as scenario planning, horizon scanning, foresight, trend analysis, and forecasts and backcasts. Futures studies is an interdisciplinary, systematic process for imagining possible outcomes and planning for the future. Using a pattern-based understanding of past and present, it looks for insights into social, cultural, technological, environmental, economic and political drivers.



Gaining foresight is an important tool in many fields, including strategic thinking, urban planning, trend forecasting, economic predictions, fashion design and speculative fiction. It is a way to gain new perspectives for enhancing decision-making, and to identify how to act in the medium and long term. Ultimately, it aims to give us the tools to explore how people will live and work in the future, opening windows into the demands and needs of tomorrow.



You will emerge with the skills to apply this way of thinking to your own discipline, and with the skills to read trends and identify potential innovations.

Visits to appropriate cultural events will be organised.
Material Cultures and Sustainability The module encourages you to learn about the future of materials and digital fabrication technologies and to consider this in relation to sustainability and your own discipline. The module focuses on material innovation, sustainability and circular economy, and asks students to research and actively explore a material or series of materials. A key part of your learning will take the form of hands-on testing as well as in-depth research into contemporary and cutting-edge material cultures.
Exploring Sleep and Dreaming This module covers the science, behaviour and philosophy of sleep and dreaming. Sleep is critical for all physical and psychological functions, yet is undervalued in society – people typically do not achieve sufficient sleep. In this module, you will understand and appreciate sleep and its functions, and you will be supported to make lifelong changes with a positive impact on their academic and cognitive performance and physical and mental health.



You will learn about topics including the science of sleep across the lifespan, the philosophy of consciousness and sleep disorders. You will cover how to measure sleep, including using sleep trackers, and the impact of sleep on cognition, academic performance, and mental and physical health.
Understanding the Politics of Migration This module provides an understanding of current refugee and migration situations by tracing historical and political developments at national and international level. Using a range of legal, policy and theoretical approaches, it will explore migration flows from both sending and receiving country contexts. We will ask questions about the causes and origins of migration and refugee flows, as well as provide some insight into the consequences of immigration for populations and politics of receiving countries. The module will explore issues of race and racism, integration, identity and belonging and gender. You will also study how new minorities are created, and diaspora and changing identities will be studied in a context of permanent social change.
Living Religions in London This module will introduce you to a range of religious communities including Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism, by utilising London as a rich resource for religious studies. By focusing on the living traditions, we will deconstruct and challenge essentialist assumptions concerning the category ‘religion’. You will explore how religion affects continuity and change among diverse cultures and communities. By applying the basic concepts of comparative religious studies and experiential learning on a series of field trips, you will learn how to integrate perspectives from multiple sources, including history, philosophy, art and architecture. Social interaction with people of faith will yield a multi-faceted understanding of what religion means to people, fostering a greater appreciation for the many ways of living in this world other than our own. Through self-reflection, we will learn how our own belief systems interact with others’.
Decision-making Strategies Masterclass Everyday decision making is composed of multiple predictions about the future over the short, medium and long-term. Whether you’re choosing a career or a place to live or designing a new product, your decisions are formed based on implicit judgements about the likely probabilities of certain events occurring. Unfortunately, humans are not as good as we think we are at making these judgements. In this module, you will learn and practice the analytical and statistical skills that will help improve this kind of decision making. Drawing on new developments in judgement enhancement, you will learn how to recognise common biases and habits that interfere with good predictions. We will also use online tools to determine whether you can be a ‘superforecaster’ – a person capable of making correct predictive judgements with a higher reliability than the general public or even subject area experts.
Podcasting Masterclass This module will help you understand the technical, business and creative skills used in producing audio.


You will engage with project-based learning to produce audio-based artefacts that demonstrate your understanding of sound as a vehicle for creating narrative and sonic experiences for various audiences, platforms and formats.



You will receive full technical training in how to record, edit and produce audio to a professional standard. In addition, you will engage with a variety of genres and styles of podcasts and critically examine case studies that will assist you to develop your media and digital literacy.
