If you’re working in the creative industries and want to progress to the management level, or seeking a career in an artistic and cultural organisation, Cultural and Arts Management at Winchester is excellent preparation. The course develops your understanding of the relationship between the business process and the creative process and examines wide-ranging topics such as the implications of cultural policy and agendas of social inclusion and sustainability.

All our assignment topics are individually tailored to make sure they are a great match for your specific own areas of interest – from music to painting, dance to millinery, and theatre to ceramics. You take part in weekly seminars, discussions, projects, visits, group and one-to-one tutorials, 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.

Graduates of Cultural and Arts Management work in a range of cultural organisations from the Nuffield Theatre in Southampton to the British Museum in London.
