Overview

While there is a focus on the publicly subsidised arts sector, the Arts Management programme at Queen's University Belfast  serves as a strong and valuable route for graduates who are interested in creating their own cultural ventures for self-employment and who are hoping to work across disciplines in the creative and cultural industries, heritage and other cultural fields. Additionally, it has proven of value for creative practitioners/artists to advance their management and business development skills. 

Students completing the course in full will undertake an independent research project to fulfil the requirements of a Masters qualification. Students completing the taught component will graduate with a Postgraduate Diploma in Arts Management.
