Course content

What will you study on the MA Arts Management?

MA Arts Management covers key subjects related to the management and structure of the arts and cultural industries, with a particular focus on the relationships between creativity and management.

There are three compulsory modules on this course and a range of additional module options covering more specialist areas of Arts Management. To complete your MA you will take a 60 credit Independent Project module, with guidance from a supervisor you will produce a research or practical project of considerable depth and complexity.

Core modules

Arts Management in Practice (30 credits) ​- Compulsory

This module aims to introduce the internal and external environments for arts management practice, including shifting global trends and the arts ecosystem. You will study organisational structures and cultures and how this impacts up arts management. This module is taught in Terms 1 and 2

Arts and Music Marketing and Finance (30 credits) ​- Compulsory

This module deals with the changing ways arts organisations raise income to support activity, and it covers commercial, public and philanthropic income and how to communicate and build relationships with these different funders, investors and customers. This module is taught in Terms 1 and 2.

Independent Project (60 credits) ​- Compulsory ​​

This is a double module that allows high level enquiry into your chosen area of arts management practice through traditional academic research or practice-based enquiry. This might include a practical project or placement inside an arts organisation. This module is introduced from Term 1 and formally taught in Term 3 for full-time students (Term 6 for part-time), with a deadline in early October of your final year of study.

Optional modules - choose two modules from the following:
