Begin your training as a cultural manager and position yourself in an emerging industry that is creating jobs. The UIC Barcelona Master's Degree Programme in Arts and Cultural Management takes a practical, international approach to the field.
You'll acquire in-depth knowledge from an entrepreneurial perspective about the work processes involved in cultural products and services. Besides subjects in key areas, the programme also includes subjects that promote leadership and the use of new technologies.
Students also learn about the work dynamics of the two specialization pathways: the visual arts and cultural heritage, and creative cultural industries. The aim is to ensure you acquire a multi-purpose, multidisciplinary profile so you can work in the area of cultural policies, institutions and projects. This master's programme is closely linked to the city of Barcelona, which boasts a first-class cultural panorama and numerous international projects.
The classroom sessions are combined with study visits where you will have the opportunity to visit cultural facilities and institutions and learn from their managers. You will also have Master Classes and workshops given by national and international experts.
This master's degree programme is an official postgraduate programme adapted to the regulations of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) with quality assessment by the Catalan University Quality Assurance Agency (AQU Catalunya) and the Spanish Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation (ANECA).


The curriculum is organised into six modules, four of which correspond to on-site classes which provide the theoretical and practical framework of the Master's, and these modules cover three trimesters (from October to June). The fifth and sixth modules involve professional work experience and the final Master's dissertation, and are undertaken throughout the entire academic year.
