Goldsmiths, University of London

Course Introduction

This programme builds on London's position as one of the most important musical centres in the world, with a diverse range of concert halls, theatres, cultural institutions and arts events that reflect its cosmopolitan and multicultural society. Although professional management practice is a major element of the programme, the 'creative arts event' is the starting point for all teaching. A music pathway has been added to the MA Arts Administration and Cultural Policy, which is run by the Institute for Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship at Goldsmiths. The MA introduces the key issues that concern the management of culture and in particular those within the performing arts. Through both analysis of contemporary and recent practice, and practical work in a range of areas, you will develop a critical approach to the discipline. This pathway allows you to pursue your interests in music, acting as a supplementary course to the main body of the Arts Administration programme. Graduates typically go on to careers in the following areas: Cultural policy: researching, developing, writing, analysing and evaluating policy for government agencies at national, regional and local level and for ?think tanks? concerned with culture and society; Management in building-based and touring theatre, dance, music and visual arts organisations; Arts education, arts regeneration and arts for social and community purposes; Audience development, fundraising, programming and planning; Independent producing in theatre, music or gallery-based organisations; Many students from this programme now have careers in major arts organisations worldwide or have progressed to MPhil/PhD degrees.
