Our aim is to provide students of the Arts Management programme at Queen's University Belfast with:
- Advanced understanding of the subject of Arts Management
- Advanced knowledge and understanding of the most up-to-date theories and discourses in Arts Management and how these are influencing practice
- Knowledge of international trends in cultural policy and how they are affecting, and affected by, the practice of Arts Management
- Essential practical skills relating to Arts Management, particularly strategic planning, financial management, business planning and engaging audiences
- A sophisticated level of critical and divergent thinking and expression
- Skills appropriate to self-directed study and independent research
- Awareness of different research methodologies and their application to the work of arts managers
- Further developed wider intellectual and transferable skills, consistent with creative thought and independent learning.
Belfast and Northern Ireland are home to arts organisations leading in areas of community engagement. Lecturers work closely with students to ensure that their involvement with the modules and assessments on the Programme connect directly with their personal learning needs.
We provide a welcoming environment for both local and international students. Students are supported and encouraged to socialise and attend local arts events together. We take intercultural education very seriously on the MA in Arts Management and believe that students on the MA can learn from one another as well as from their tutors and lecturers on the course.
Students have a unique opportunity to meet and work with artists studying on other MA pathways in the School.
