About this Course

This PG Cert aims to meet a proven need for graduates with skills in creative arts management. Recent research has shown that creative arts enterprises need graduates with skills in producing, arts management, curation, marketing, and similar entrepreneurial skills. Delivered in collaboration with Galway International Arts Festival and other NUI Galway creative arts partners, this Cert will provide skills in design thinking, producing and curation, and business/management, while also offering an accredited work placement with a creative arts business.

Students gain hands-on skills in practice-based modules that are delivered on-campus (with blended options available for those living away from Galway). It includes a strong focus on targeted career development; students carry out an internship with an arts organisation and participate in supervised work experience projects.

Research has shown that many new jobs can and will be created in the Creative Industries, both in the west of Ireland and nationally, up to 2026. This course aims to equip students with the skills needed to meet, lead and develop this demand, forming partnerships not only locally but nationally and internationally in order to do so. The course builds on NUI Galway's successful track record of producing graduates who work on the business side of creative arts, in key areas including theatre, film, creative writing, and curation.

Entry Requirements

Applicants are required to hold a primary degree in Arts, Business, or other cognate area OR at least five years' relevant work experience in creative arts OR business/management (RPL will be available).
