At the University of Reading studying the Creative Enterprise Art Pathway will combine leading academic expertise from the School of Arts and Communication Design, Henley Business School and the School of Law, and provides a platform for you to progress in entrepreneurial careers, either pursuing start-up opportunities on their own or taking leading managerial roles in creative firms.
It is suitable for students from a range of subject backgrounds with the knowledge and skills to embark on a career as a creative, entrepreneur or manager within the creative sector, and will provide valuable experience of major galleries, museums and collections and engage in public exhibitions and curatorial projects.
You will be taught by dynamic, high-profile international artists. All of our staff are practising artists, curators and writers and our research-led teaching offers opportunities for you to engage with exhibition and curatorial initiatives, theoretical texts and publication projects. Join a vibrant community of artists, writers and curators focused on the entrepreneurial education in the business of art.
The art pathway develops your individual practice and research within a collaborative environment with opportunities to engage in public exhibitions and curatorial projects.
Modules draw on the research strengths of art at Reading in a distinctive blend of critical practice and theory. Together, we map the contemporary art world exploring the production, dispersion and critical analysis of art and its institutions.
Combine modules in management and entrepreneurship with a selection of modules in critical art practice and theory.
Our postgraduate environment extends out from Reading through our external exhibitions, symposia and workshops, and participation in our Asia network means you will have opportunities to exhibit in Japan, China and South Korea.
Plus, our associate partnership with the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, gives you membership for events, internship opportunities and seminar space in London.
