The MA Cultural Management explores where cultural theory meets management practice. It provides a framework of understanding of the needs of cultural organisations including their social and cultural context, the business and funding environment and aesthetic aims and concerns. It considers the Cultural and Creative Industries in a critical manner.
The MA offers an innovative approach to creative and cultural leadership, including operational and strategic management with a specialist focus. The programme offers professional development at a high level, encouraging learners to critically reflect on policies, procedures and practices informed by theory, considering audience engagement and development, income generation, customers and consumers. Innovative partnerships with cultural organisations provide practical opportunities.
As Cultural Managers often create their own work, the programme provides opportunities to consider the skills needed for engagement with all aspects of the dynamic businesses, practices and organisations that make up the rapidly evolving Cultural and Creative Industries.
Since graduating I've had key positions in theatre companies across the country, something I'm certain I'd never have achieved if I hadn't studied the MA when I did - it gave me an edge in a very competitive market.
Candidates should possess one of the following: a degree in an arts related area; a degree in a non-arts related area with a proven interest in an art form or aspects of cultural management and/or considerable relevant work experience.
