Course summary

Our pioneering PhD Arts and Cultural Management programme is ideal if you work in the arts and cultural management sector and want to undertake advanced research that builds on your professional knowledge and practice. The structure of the programme will enable you to develop your career while simultaneously undertaking a research project leading to a doctoral qualification. This PhD is one of a suite of professional practice-focused doctorates overseen by the University's Institute for Cultural Practices. It aims to engage experienced professionals in advanced research, and reflects the need for structured forms of professional development and reflective practice across the arts sector. The programme takes explicit account of the professional practice-base of the candidate, integrating this as a central knowledge base for the research project, and supporting the development of dynamic knowledge outcomes that can have an impact across academic and non-academic contexts.

This programme is designed to support people who are embarking on advanced research and who are combining doctoral study with a career, enabling you to build on your professional knowledge and practice. The programme supports the development of reflective practice that can respond to and influence the complex unpredictable and shifting social and cultural contexts within which practitioners operate. The programme will introduce you to a range of dynamic and challenging concepts and methods with which to reflect critically and constructively on your professional practice. You will receive individual supervision from an academic supervisor with a specialism related to your field of research, as well as opportunities to develop reflective enquiry into practice via group-based learning exercises with other practitioners at two three-day meetings per year.
