Course description

On this MSc you will learn the essential knowledge and critical skills you need to become a successful manager in the cultural and creative sector. You may also have the option to undertake an organisational project, giving you real-world work experience within a company.

The city makes this programme unique. Sheffield is a timely and 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 complex outside London. The city regularly hosts high-profile exhibitions from prominent London galleries such as the V&A (the Victoria & Albert Museum). Sheffield boasts a vibrant design and digital quarter and has sent theatrical productions to the West End.

This programme 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, Electric Works, Workstation, and Sheffield Theatres. Study visits to culture industry providers are an integral part of this programme; volunteering placements in the sector may also be available.

There are field trips and guest lectures from those working in the sector. You can also apply to base your dissertation on a project with a high profile arts organisation or event in the city.
