Working as a manager in the cultural sector requires a detailed knowledge of theory and also concrete practical skills. This Masters in Cultural Management specialises in two particular areas, film studies and contemporary music, including them in much wider programme of cultural knowledge and understanding of the arts today in general. Classes and seminars will be led both by faculty members and by competent professionals who have specialised in these areas. They will help students to think about culture in a interdisciplinary manner. This course increases students’ grasp of all aspects of performance arts in both theory and practice from several points of view (historical, aesthetic, anthropological legal and economic) making them highly competetive on the job market for all forms of employment in the area of cultural management.
Applicants must have a Bachelor’s degree either in the arts or humanities and be very interested in all kinds of cultural activities. Non-native speakers of French must prove they have attained the level B2 on the European scale.
