What you'll study
This Creative Industries and Arts Organisation MA programme offered at Queen Mary University of London will provide you with strategic research and consultancy capacity for work in the creative industries. Building on a resilient and sustainability-oriented network of practitioners, creatives, organisers and strategic collaborators, this course offers a complex view of the (often precarious) forms of work and organisation that have emerged in the creative sectors.
We draw from existing knowledge in the departments of Drama, Film, Law, English and Geography, and the School of Business and Management. As well as business modules, you can take four art-centred modules, such as French Film, Mental Health and Theatre, or Cultural Geography. This allows you to gain a full-spectrum understanding of the industry and to tailor your learning to suit your career trajectory.
You will delve into subjects at the heart of the creative industries, including:
- equality and diversity
- ethical marketing
- democratic cultural administration
- critical management and organisational studies
- digital communication
- project management.
You will research the organisational practices of partner organisations and through open discussions, debates and guest speakers (artists, creatives, arts administrators, cultural organisers). You will gain experience in business and public engagement strategy, collaborative leadership, organisational behaviour, and global value chain ecologies in arts and cultural organisations in London.
You will become confident in collaborative action research, ethical human resource management and sustainable partnership development and you’ll understand how to organise resilient creative and cultural partnerships.
