Что я буду изучать?

The MA Cultural Policy and Arts Management is aimed at graduate students and experienced cultural sector practitioners seeking the skills to be effective managers and leaders in the arts and heritage fields. Lectures are carried out in small seminar rooms where active participation in debate with lecturers and guest lecturers is encouraged.

The critical and practical content of the programme challenges students to analyse the conceptual frameworks and cultural contexts that generate cultural policies, while acquiring the skills to be effective leaders and managers in the cultural field. The competencies acquired provide graduates with an excellent multi-disciplinary qualification that is highly regarded among sectoral employers, in Ireland and internationally.

  • A dynamic learning environment in which a diverse group of fellow-students (from different countries and with different cultural and art form backgrounds) pursue their shared goal of being effective managers and thinkers in the cultural field
  • Access to a wide range of top cultural sector managers in Ireland who contribute to the course as guest lecturers
  • A rich mix of theoretical approaches to culture, combined with the practical skills to be an effective manager

Careers & Employability

The programme’s emphasis on vocational skills, practitioner input, and networking (through work placements), provides those coming from arts and humanities backgrounds with the kind of transferable business skills that will enhance their employability. Graduates will have the capacity to negotiate, research and think strategically about policy issues, and to apply practical management skills (acquired primarily through modules in marketing, management, finance, law and strategic planning), in running arts or heritage organisations on both a strategic and day-to-day basis.

Vision and Values Statement

The programme aims to equip those wishing to pursue a career in the professional arts and cultural sector with the skills and competencies to be effective managers, and with the confidence and competency to lead and influence change in cultural policies at national and local levels. Our educational mission is to produce ‘reflective practitioners’: people capable of thinking deeply and philosophically about the role of the arts and culture in society, while acquiring a set of technical skills in the fields of management, marketing, research, finance, and law to perform effectively as managers and leaders in their field. Additionally, the strong vocational nature of the programme provides students with a realistic pathway towards employment, career, and further research opportunities in the cultural field. To this end, we continually adapt the programme in response to evolving policy and technological and professional changes in the field of cultural management, both domestically and internationally. Students will emerge from this programme with the strategic vision and leadership skills to ensure that the civic and societal value of the arts and heritage is widely appreciated, reflected in the mission of cultural institutions, and at the heart of government policies for culture.
