The city makes this programme unique. Sheffield is an exciting place to specialise in the creative and cultural industries thanks to its internationally renowned museums and galleries, thriving music scene, and one of the largest regional theatre complexes outside London. The city regularly hosts high-profile exhibitions as well as stages its own events in several pop-up and DIY venues. Sheffield boasts a vibrant creative industries quarter and frequently sends its theatrical productions to the West End.

This course provides general training in management with an emphasis on understanding and managing creative enterprises and cultural organisations. Students are encouraged to make use of Sheffield’s strong creative and cultural brands such as Museums Sheffield, S1, Showroom Cinema, and Sheffield Theatres.

Cultural field trips to experience creative programmes at various destinations are an integral part of this course, and guest speakers working in the sector provide professional expertise.
