The aims of the course are to enable you to: -Acquire a critical perspective on cultural policy and management in the public, private and voluntary sectors within an international context. -Develop the skills associated with the practice of cultural management. -Develop your own specialist knowledge and skills. -Construct your own programme of studies from a series of options.
The MA in International Cultural Policy and Management takes an inter-disciplinary approach to the study of cultural policy and management. This is characterised by the theories and approaches applied, the differing backgrounds and expertise of the teaching staff, and the diverse viewpoints in the international student group to which you will belong.
The degree is concerned with both the development of critical perspectives on cultural policy and the acquisition of skills that cultural managers require. Consequently the course emphasises the importance of both theory and practice, and the relationship between them. You will be able to determine the appropriate balance between practice and theoretical work from the range of option modules offered, according to your particular needs.
