About

The Cultural and Arts Management program offered by The University of Winchester develops your understanding of the relationship between the business process and the creative process, and examines wide-ranging topics such as implications of cultural policy and agendas of social inclusion and sustainability. 

Overview

The Cultural and Arts Management program offered by The University of Winchester is individually tailored to make sure they are a great match for your specific own areas of interest – from music to painting, dance to millinery, theatre to ceramics. You take part in weekly seminars, discussions, projects, visits, group and one-to-one tutorials, and directed and self-directed study, and develop your IT skills in areas such as website design and project management. Assessment is through coursework only, using a variety of formats similar to those used professionally in the industry. They include business plans, reports, audits and portfolios. Teaching takes place in the evenings, so you can study while working or completing an internship. 

Some modules concentrate on the internal environment of artistic and cultural organisations (for example, examining issues of marketing, finance and strategy) while others focus on the external environment – the context in which artistic and cultural organisations operate, for example with reference to national policies and global trends. You finish with a professional project – an independent piece of work on a topic of your choice. this could involve organising an exhibition or a tour, starting a small company or implementing a marketing campaign. 

Careers

The programme strengthens knowledge and skills for use for a managerial career in the creative industries for small cultural operators or large organisations such as the Arts Council. Graduates have worked in a range of cultural organisations from The Nuffield Theatre in Southampton to The British Museum in London.
