MA/PgDip/PgCert Cultural Policy and Management
The cultural sector is expanding rapidly and many employers now seek a professional postgraduate qualification. This course is intended for cultural managers seeking further qualification in their field and for graduates from any discipline who want to develop professional and vocational studies at postgraduate level. It is suitable for those wishing to convert their career path from another discipline to cultural management.
The course covers specialist studies in the policy, strategy and management of cultural organisations, relevant to the needs of those who work in, and run, cultural organisations.
It offers flexible study through both full-time and part-time routes, with the opportunity for students to develop and apply their skills and individual interests within taught modules, workplace projects and research.
While encompassing basic management theory where relevant, the degree offers elements specific to the cultural sector which are not included within a conventional MBA.
This is an ideal course for those who want to work in the cultural industries • visual arts • multimedia • design • crafts • galleries • theatre • broadcasting
It addresses the current shortfall in sector-focused training and professional development for managers in cultural organisations, and arts and cultural provision. Students on the course have found employment in these organisations.
There are also optional specialist modules in curating visual culture or arts in healthcare.
Visit the arts and cultural management website for more information about the course modules, staff and the department.
The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) awards bursaries to UK and EU students. These awards are based on merit so careful preparation of your application is essential.
Applications for the bursary competition must be received at the AHRC in the spring of each year but this requires a prior offer of a place on the course.
The degree is designed to enhance the careers of those already working in arts and cultural management. It also aims to develop specialist skills for graduates in varying disciplines intending to enter this expanding field.
There may be opportunities for research registration at MPhil/PhD level within the Cultural Research Institute.
