If you are interested in the arts and you would like to monetise or create opportunity to get the most from the wide range of art forms, Aberdeen offer a programme where you can do just that. The programme doesn't ask for both an art or business degree before entry but you should have general knowledge of the arts markets in galleries and museums. There are wide ranging galleries and museums internationally, some of which have UNESCO world heritage status and are able to draw in massive crowds, others struggle due to location or subject matter. It is for you to realise how these specialist areas can be to grow and benefit from visitors and how to draw out the value to make a visit or experience unforgettable. You combine highly employable skills taught by the Business School with management of the arts giving you a head start in finding what interests you in employment afterwards.
Within the programme you also discover the grand masters of the art world, deception, and how to spot forgeries of well known works and lesser known works within painting, drawing, sketching, sculpture and other art forms made famous by past masters. This is a fascinating world of 'Fake of Fortune' where you scrutinise every piece of evidence to decide. There is certainly a lot of interest in the art world made famous by experts on the BBC in the art world but you are not limited to this area, you can widen your interests within museums and galleries to learn curation and exhibiting different art forms.
The MLitt will appeal to you if you enjoy the visual arts of any kind and you want to embark on an exciting international career in the art trade, heritage sector or museums. If you come from an arts background but want to learn the business side of things and the law regarding art purchase and copyright since origination and sale this is a great way of doing this and if you are from a business background but you have always had interests in the arts you get to learn about art forms, curation, exhibitions and periods of art rapidly.
If you have no background in History of Art you may wish to take Modern Art
