Course Overview

This is a professionally focused MA and is designed for practising artists and graduates who wish to develop portfolio careers in the arts. Students complete four taught modules which develop their knowledge and skills in relation to contemporary issues in the arts, business planning, marketing, event management and a placement with an arts organisation.  In addition they will work on their arts practice (with the support of a creative mentor), and develop a professional standard arts project which is finally presented at a festival organised by the student cohort.

The programme benefits from the excellent Live at LICA public arts provision at Lancaster University (Nuffield Theatre, Lancaster International Concert Series and Peter Scott Gallery) as well as a wealth of national and international industry connections.
