Our MA in Arts Management covers the core skills required to manage arts and cultural organisations in the 21st century. It will enable you to gain a broad understanding of the institutions and major players that influence the cultural, political, social, and economic environment in which arts and cultural organisations operate. It will also provide you with a toolkit of key business skills, including marketing, business planning, finance, IT and fundraising. The work experience element of our course will enable you to apply your business skills in a practical context.

Assessment

If you work in an arts organisation, or have secured a placement, you will be encouraged to illustrate your assignments with reference to the real situations, problems and issues facing your employers or host organisation.

The learning approach is to develop students' knowledge through in-depth, theoretical and practical work in lectures and seminars, in order to enable students to adapt broad theoretical models into their professional lives.

Learning is carried out via a wide variety of modes, there are two cohorts annually attending in either full-time or part-time mode (part-time students are largely practising arts managers), through studying a range of specifically tailored modules. There are opportunities for both full-time and part-time students to work together, thereby developing and exchanging knowledge and practice. This is supplemented by the wide variety of outside visiting speakers from the profession who act as visiting lecturers on our course.

Teaching will include a wide range of approaches such as lectures, seminar, and case study work. Special emphasis on 30 credit modules will include team teaching and the setting of work-based tasks at a strategic level.

Assessment methods will have a strong practical and professional orientation and include assignments, oral individual and group presentations, research proposals and work-based learning projects.

A first degree at 2:2 or above in Humanities is normally required but some flexibility is possible for applicants with relevant experience. Work experience in an arts or cultural environment is desirable; voluntary work experience is acceptable.
