Arts Management

This programme is suitable for a range of participants. Early and mid-career arts managers, who wish to develop their practice and understanding of the background, theories and principles of arts and cultural management, find this degree valuable. It also serves as a route for graduates who wish to pursue a career in arts or media management and will prepare those interested in creating their own cultural ventures for self-employment. Students take 4 core modules, all of which focus on contemporary issues of arts and cultural management. All modules are connected by a common strategic thread: how to train future arts leaders against the backdrop of cultural, economic and political trends.
