The MA in Arts Management, Policy and Practice enables students to develop their knowledge and understanding of the history, theory and practice of arts management; to gain an insight into the range of professional opportunities in the creative and cultural sector; and to acquire direct experience of the many areas of arts management.

Course description:

The MA in Arts Management, Policy and Practice enables students to develop their knowledge and understanding of the history, theory and practice of arts management; to gain an insight into the range of professional opportunities in the creative and cultural sector; and to acquire direct experience of the many areas of arts management. The programme has a strong practical, hands-on element. At the same time it offers a solid theoretical grounding, exploring cultural policy in its historical context and encouraging critical engagement with the philosophical, political, social and economic imperatives informing contemporary practice. Above all, we aim to produce pioneers rather than bureaucrats.
Lecturers from the Centre for Arts Management teach the MA with considerable input from arts professionals including staff from the Martin Harris Centre, Contact Theatre, the Royal Exchange, Whitworth Art Gallery and many other local cultural organisations. We also work closely with our sister programme, the highly regarded MA in Art Gallery and Museum Studies.

Aims:

The programme is designed to serve as an entry-level qualification for recent graduates as well as offering professional development for mid-career practitioners. It offers flexibility and opportunities for specialisation, while ensuring a thorough grounding in essential principles and methodology. It provides a solid foundation for careers in different areas of the arts and creative industries, and caters for arts practitioners as well as aspiring managers.

Special features:

The siting of the programme close to a range of leading arts venues offers a unique opportunity for students to engage with the practical considerations of arts management. The Martin Harris Centre is a hub of cutting edge research and interdisciplinary investigation: in addition to the Cosmo Rodewald Concert Hall and John Thaw Theatre, it is home to the Tipp Centre (Theatre in Prisons and Probation), the Centre for Screen Studies, Centre for Applied Theatre Research, Manchester Theatre in Sound (MANTIS), Manchester Centre for Music in Culture (MC2), and the NOVARS Research Centre for Electroacoustic Composition, Performance and Sound-Art. Other cultural organisations based at the university - Manchester Academy, Contact Theatre, Manchester Museum and the Whitworth Art Gallery - are only a few minutes' walk away.
The programme also benefits from the exceptionally rich grouping of arts-based institutions and agencies in Manchester and the North West - an area celebrated for containing more theatres than any other region outside London and now hosting the BBC at the new Media City at Salford Quays. Liverpool (European Capital of Culture 2008), Leeds and Sheffield are all within easy reach. A wide range of regional arts venues and organisations contribute to the programme by providing guest lecturers, site visits and work placements.
The programme is based within the School or Arts, Languages and Cultures. The core of the School's interest is the field of human cultures, beliefs and institutions. Its work embraces the material, visual, creative and performative dimensions of culture, and as such fosters a rich interdisciplinary culture led by world-renowned scholars with a diversity of expertise, from analysts to creative artists, from historians of ideas to cultural theorists. We work particularly closely with staff from the highly-rated departments of Music and Drama.

Coursework and assessment:

All students take two core modules (Arts Management: Principles and Practice, and Cultural Policy) and write a dissertation (15,000 words, or for a practice-based dissertation 8,000-10,000 words plus project documentation). The remaining credits (two or three additional modules) are taken from a range of options including:
• Work Placement in an arts organisation
• Business Strategies for the Arts (Marketing, Finance and Business Planning)
• Creative Learning: Arts, Heritage and Education
• Professional Practice Live Project
• Subject to availability, modules may also be selected from the MA in Art Gallery and Museum Studies or from elsewhere in the school.
All modules include a programme of guest lectures and/or practical seminars by experienced professionals based in cultural institutions in and around Manchester. The programme also features visits to a selection of key sites and venues in the North West.

You will be expected to 'perform' regularly in front of your fellow students to encourage the development of strong working relationships similar to a professional chambers.

The BPTC begins with a participative and dynamic induction programme introducing students to the highly practical BPTC, compared with academic study. Students are almost immediately offered the opportunity to network with local practitioners during a team building exercise and social event. Following this induction, the remainder of the course features a combination of compulsory subjects and an opportunity to study two subjects of your choice, depending on your particular career aspirations.

You will also take part in career prospect enhancing activities that range from guest talks by Judges and Clerks of Chambers to lessons in voice projection, which are all ideal preparations for BPTC students seeking pupillage. An important feature of the course is the Additional Advocacy Classes provided by members of the Northern Circuit to help you realise your full potential in developing these vital skills. Each chambers group will also receive classes on professional conduct from a working barrister acting as the group’s Practitioner Mentor. You will also receive the opportunity to gain an independent mediation qualification, included as part of the course.

The BPTC is taught by an experienced team of barristers as well as Tribunal Chairs.

Teaching is complemented by online resources ranging from self-testing resources and podcasts to advocacy demonstrations.

Additionally, the Law School runs several pro bono legal schemes, offering students the opportunity to practise their skills on live legal projects.

Carol Ann Duffy – Poet Laureate and Creative Director of the Manchester Writing School

At the heart of the Manchester Writing School are our Masters programmes in Creative Writing, available to study on campus in Manchester, and also from anywhere in the world via online distance learning.

On our Master of Fine Arts (MFA) programme, you will explore and practice techniques and styles of modern and contemporary writing and apply these through the development of your own full-length book. MFA students undertake all of the elements of our MA Creative Writing programme (a taught element blending writing workshops with reading units, an elective, and a dissertation), then take an additional unit about the publishing industry and submit a full-length manuscript: a completed novel, poetry collection, book for children or young adults, or book about place. The MFA is available to complete over two years full-time or three years part-time/online.

You will be introduced to professionals from the publishing industries – agents, editors, publishers and publicists – and the School has strong links with many major arts, educational and cultural organisations. Our MFA model is unparalleled in coaching students through the development and completion of a full-length book under the sustained guidance of distinguished, practising writers and seeing those students achieve success in publishing.

Today, the AGMS course is continually being reviewed and developed in response to new research, emerging critical approaches and shifts in museum practice. Manchester's traditional focus on the art gallery remains, but is now balanced by course units which address history, theory and practice in a range of institutions.
Throughout the degree, you will examine diverse issues related to museum theory and practice, visit numerous museums, galleries and cultural organisations, and have many opportunities to discuss ideas and issues with professionals and academics in the field. The AGMS course combines both guided and independent study, and includes seminars, guest lectures and site visits.

Special features:

Work Placement (Semesters 1 and 2)
One of the most popular aspects of the AGMS is the work placement that you undertake in a museum or gallery. Each placement involves a minimum of 20 days work on a specific project, such as exhibition development, collections management, or education programme. Many students find this such a positive experience that they carry on working in their museum when the work placement has finished, and each year a few students are offered jobs by their placement hosts. Work placements start in Semester 1 (November/December) and finish in Semester 2 (June).
You can take the work placement either as 15-credit or 30-credit course.
• See more information and a list of past work placements

The MA in Conference Interpreting (MACINT) aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills for a career in conference interpreting. Read more

Course description:

The MA in Conference Interpreting (MACINT) aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills for a career in conference interpreting.
Students will offer one of two profiles, reflecting the two distinct profiles of practising conference interpreters.
Profile 1: Designed for students who have English as their native language (A language) and two passive foreign languages (C languages). These students will be trained in both types of interpreting out of both C languages into their A language.
Profile 2: Designed for students with Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Russian or Spanish as their native language (A language) and English as an active foreign language (B language), or English as their native language (A language) and Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Russian or Spanish as an active foreign language (B language). These students will be trained in both types of interpreting in both directions (i.e. B-A and A-B).
The taught component of the MA combines 75 credits of conference interpreting courses (consecutive and simultaneous interpreting) with 45 credits of research-oriented courses. The dissertation (60 remaining credits) is written on a research project or a specific interpreting assignment (interpreting plus critical analysis). The programme prepares students for a professional career as a conference interpreter, developing the range of linguistic, specialist and technological skills required in the work place.

For more information please visit our MACINT page, http://www.alc.manchester.ac.uk/subjects/tis/postgraduatetaught/macint/

Aims:

• To equip students with the knowledge and advanced interpreting skills for a career in conference interpreting
• To provide specialist training in consecutive and simultaneous interpreting
• To provide a gradual transition into the professional world through practical, real-life interpreting tasks
• To provide guidance on professional conduct and ethics
• To enable students to reflect critically on their own and others' interpreting practice
• To equip students for further study and research

Teaching and learning:

The MACINT degree is devised to train students with aptitude for Conference Interpreting in an intensive and highly individualised manner.
Contact hours with CTIS staff will involve a mixture of seminars with students studying all five languages on the MACINT degree (Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Russian and Spanish) and language-specific tutorials focusing on your particular language combination. In the Professional Development for Conference Interpreters unit, students will also have the opportunity to work as part of a team of interpreters at a number of simulated multilingual conferences. As a result of the technology involved in simultaneous interpreting, class sizes are small which allows for intensive contact with teaching staff. In addition to class contact hours, e-learning provision provides students with the support and feedback required between classes, as well as allowing them the possibility for tracking their progress. Guided self-study sessions in small groups are an essential part of the MACINT degree. These sessions encourage self-reflexive learning and also nurture peer assessment and feedback skills. As a result of the expertise of CTIS staff, students will also be taught conference interpreting on the basis of research carried out in skill and expertise acquisition in Interpreting Studies. In addition, teaching and learning is informed by current research in Interpreting Studies on issues as diverse as cognitive processing and the social and ethical role of the interpreter.

Find out more about our course and our trainers in our MACINT page, http://www.alc.manchester.ac.uk/subjects/tis/postgraduatetaught/macint/course-content/

Coursework and assessment:

MACINT is designed as a specialised postgraduate qualification in Conference Interpreting. Course units in consecutive and simultaneous interpreting complement one another and teaching and learning is informed closely by the research-led components. As the modules in MACINT are progressive (e.g. Consecutive Interpreting II builds on skills learnt and settings covered in Consecutive Interpreting I), with structured self-study forming an integral part of the course design, students are able to track their progress clearly as the programme develops.
Assessment on MACINT takes two forms: (1) assessed coursework and (2) end-of-unit examinations. The theoretical units (Interpreting Studies, Research Methods I and II) are assessed entirely by coursework, with two tasks spaced throughout the semester, enabling students to critically reflect on the material covered in class and receive formative feedback. Assessment in the practical interpreting modules is weighted towards end-of-unit examination, assessed by a panel of internal and external examiners, reflecting the task and professional practice of conference interpreting. However, coursework assessment is also integral to the practical interpreting units. This takes the forms of oral presentations, critical essays, and interpreting professional portfolios.
