Comprising scholarly, industry and practical approaches to arts production, policy and management, this unit provides you with a professional level of conceptual and practical knowledge and skill in arts management. This unit is designed to introduce you to advanced knowledge about arts management, policy and funding opportunities, as well as skills of relevance to entering arts management positions. As Arts Management continues to be a key employment pathway for many creative industries and creative arts graduates, this unit and the specialisation to which it contributes provides an opportunity for both those with cognate undergraduate qualifications and/or experience, as well as arts managers already working in the field, to gain postgraduate level knowledge, skills and qualifications. This unit and the Arts Management major provide a key way to develop authentic engagement relationships between arts organisations, arts professionals and CQUniversity.
