Birkbeck, University of London

Course Introduction

The BA Arts and Media Management provides an opportunity to learn about managing arts and media organisations - including film and TV, museums, galleries and theatres - from practitioners and academics who are actively working in the arts sector. This flexible programme of professional development forges a combination of creative, critical and management skills, as well as enabling technical skills. The focus on transferable work-related knowledge and skills will enable you to meet the changing demands of doing and managing creative work. Your learning will be underpinned by the critical and theoretical literature on cultural labour and entrepreneurship, ownership and gatekeeping, diversity and representation, cultural policy and copyright.

The programme features pathways designed to assist in professional development and specialisation, and you will have the opportunity to undertake a work placement or develop a business plan/funding proposal under the guidance of relevant industry practitioners. Depending on your choice of modules and final project, you will graduate with a BA Arts Management, BA Media Management or BA Arts and Media Management.
