Arts Management (PgCert)

Queen Margaret University


You will complete three modules on this block-taught PgCert, covering topics including fundraising, governance, leadership and finance.

As part of your course you can opt to evaluate a live project you are involved in. You will produce a report that may help evidence, impact and generate future support for your work.

You will also consolidate your new learning with a placement in an arts organisation.
