The Master of Creative Arts - Arts Educator programme at The University of the West Indies is built on the study and appreciation of the arts and grounded in the skills required for teaching and learning in the arts and the management of arts and cultural industries. 


Creative Arts - Arts Educator students at The University of the West Indies learn the dynamics of the creative process – artistic production, working with artists, schools, government agencies, cultural organizations, community groups and art institutions, such as museums and dance companies, to promote art, enhance artistic skills, raise funds, manage budgets, and develop arts and cultural programmes. 

Our postgraduate programme seeks to engage artists, teachers and cultural industry workers to explore the development of an arts and cultural infrastructure focusing on national and regional objectives within a Caribbean context. With the increasing importance of arts and culture in the international economy, our post-graduate programme focuses on capacity building to develop human resources in the creative arts, to integrate the arts into schools’ curricula and to produce high-quality art work that will benefit the Caribbean and support the growth of the arts and culture sector.
