This course engages with the growing importance of culture in a range of policy contexts, preparing you for the diverse managerial challenges of careers in the cultural sector.
Taking the international dimension of cultural policy and management as its starting point, the programme draws on experiences and examples from around the world and gives you the skills needed to anticipate future developments. As well as engaging with the practical realities of cultural and managerial practice, we encourage you to reflect critically on the real-world examples you encounter. A dissertation on a topic of your choice enables you to develop your research skills and follow your academic interests whilst also allowing you to investigate current issues, themes and developments in cultural policy.
You may also choose to undertake a placement with a cultural organisation, giving you the opportunity to hone your cultural management skills. Our programme of guest speakers and careers support will give you insights into current practice and research, and highlight the many opportunities available to you.
