City, University of London
Culture, Policy and Management
This Masters is ideal for those who have an undergraduate degree and a passion for the arts, or those with previous experience working within the cultural sector and eclectic areas of interest they want to pursue. From digital crowdfunding to policies for the creative city, and from social media and the democratisation of opera to the motivations of young fashion enrepreneurs or museum branding, students are able to investigate their own subject and develop their individual professional path on the programme. This programme is all about customising your learning so you can become a competent professional ready to start, continue or change your career. On completion of the course you will be able to evaluate and integrate the theories and practices of culture, policy and management.
MA: You will need, as a minimum: a lower second class honours degree or equivalent; and an understanding of your country's cultural policy and have some relevant experience - this could be as a volunteer. We understand that many of you will have experience of subsequent professional practice. Special consideration is given to applications from mature students without the required formal qualifications and those wishing to make a career change.
