The programme contains four taught modules and a further dissertation/portfolio component.
You'll have a range of choices throughout the degree enabling you to design a pathway that is most relevant to your academic, business and career ambitions.
All students take modules I and III, and you can choose between options offered in performing arts for modules II and IV.
Attendance is mandatory for all taught sections of the programme. To encourage collaborative learning we try to teach all students together wherever possible, irrespective of their particular pathway.
Module IV: Entrepreneurial Practices and Modes of Production
Either: Sector Overiew: Performing Arts and Audience Development and Fundraising 30 Credits
OR Work Placement
You will undertake a work placement within an SME, Producing or Research Organisation within the cultural and creative industries.
There will be initial taught/tutorial sessions on managing an internship and experiential learning and assessment would be by an analytical report on the ‘culture of management’ of the organisation.
In some pathways this will be augmented by classes in specific skill areas (such as marketing) as you are likely to be working in skill-specific departments of organisations.
Module V: Dissertation OR Project/Portfolio
The content and research imperatives of the dissertation/portfolio can be developed in tutorials with staff to address your individual needs. It could range from an entirely written document researching a particular area of the cultural and creative industries to a fully developed proposal for a new business.
