MA in Arts and Cultural Management

MA Arts & Cultural Management

Commencing Sept 2019

The new MA in Arts & Cultural Management, jointly developed by the School of Music & Theatre at UCC and Cork Opera House, will be launched in 2019. The programme showcases new forms of collaboration between the academy and the profession through innovative teaching, learning and research practices. This includes a wide range of placements and mentorships through the collaborative partnership between UCC and Cork Opera House as a ‘Learning Theatre’ as well as existing professional connections with the local, national and international arts community. The new MA will be led by Dr. Marie Kelly (School of Music and Theatre, UCC, and former member of the Abbey Theatre’s management and creative team) and Eibhlín Gleeson (Chief Executive, Cork Opera House). The MA in Arts & Cultural Management will draw together the Departments of Theatre, Music, and Business/Law at UCC, and the professional cultural context of Cork Opera House, working together to educate and inspire the next generation of arts managers, creative practitioners and professionals, and creating industry leaders of the future.
