About

Through combining arts management with heritage studies, as a student in the Arts Management and Heritage Studies programme at the University of Leeds, you will develop a sophisticated understanding of the changing political, policy and practice contexts within which the arts and heritage sectors operate today.  

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Compulsory modules explore the nature of heritage and how meanings of objects, artworks and buildings change in different contexts. You will examine the challenges faced by arts managers and cultural leaders, and the changes that have led some museums to move towards the role of the ‘manager’ rather than the ‘curator’.

You will choose from optional modules to tailor your degree to your interests or career plans – including the opportunity to undertake a work placement or consultancy project role in either arts management or heritage. 

Previous students have undertaken placements focused on collections, digitisation work, digital interpretation and community engagement.

Career: 

The Arts Management and Heritage Studies programme at the University of Leeds is designed to equip you to fill a gap in the current market and become a cultural leader of the future. We encourage you to build up a portfolio of project work to help with future job applications, and you have opportunities to gain practical work experience.

As well as the in-depth subject knowledge you will gain, you will improve your skills in research, analysis, communication and critical and cultural awareness. You will also benefit from the contacts gained through work with partner organisations and the Centre for Critical Studies in Museums, Galleries and Heritage.
