Subject

Management studies

This programme will equip you for working life in the cultural and creative industries, with a specific focus on working in and managing the arts.

These industries are an important and expanding sector in the global economy. In this programme, you will develop a powerful combination of theoretical insights and practice skills that will lead to success in this sector.

You’ll learn how to manage arts and creative organisations, from micro-businesses through to major international arts institutions. This will prepare you for a career in this fascinating area that covers a number of the creative industries: museums, galleries, theatres, dance and live music venues, and software and film companies.

The programme is taught with guest lectures from and opportunities to visit international, regional and London-based cultural organisations, so you’ll gain direct experience of professional practice, and you may benefit from a work placement as part of your studies.

Modules

You’ll learn fundamental arts management skills but you’ll also choose from a wide variety of option modules covering both theory and practice from departments including Music, Politics, and Theatre and Performance. In core modules you’ll cover key cultural policy concepts such as:
funding systems
audience development
cultural diplomacy
cultural tourism
copyright
urban planning
regeneration

A substantial part of the programme is taught in partnership with international, regional and London-based cultural organisations, so you’ll gain direct experience of professional practice. You could also benefit from a work placement in, for example, an audience development, fundraising or event management context. With the wide range of skills you’ll develop, you’ll graduate understanding not only the practice within your chosen field, but also how it relates to the theory you’ve learned. So your career decisions – whether as manager or entrepreneur – will be properly informed. You can also tailor the degree to your unique interests.

Level 4 - You will study the following modules and option modules:
Culture and Society
Introduction to Arts and Cultural Theory
Cultural Policy: Contexts and Models
Events Management

Level 5 - You will study the following modules in addition to option modules:
The Audience in Theory and Practice

Managing Arts Organisations and Cultural Businesses
Professional Practice in Arts Organisations and Cultural Businesses
Principles of Arts Funding

Level 6 - You will complete a dissertation and study the compulsory module Professional Practice Project. You will also choose optional modules to the value of 30 credits.

Please note that due to staff research commitments not all of these modules may be available every year.
