Course sub-headings

Course overview

This course provides an understanding of the functions and principles of management within the field of arts and entertainment. It examines the role of arts management in creating opportunities for arts and cultural organisations to be vital, viable and responsive to stakeholders. The critical role of arts marketing in ensuring the engagement of diverse audiences and stakeholders is also examined.   Students will develop the necessary skills and knowledge, work in the arts and cultural sector, understand the sectors’ fundraising and sponsorship needs, contribute to the growing internationalisation of the arts, facilitate the vibrant and sustainable operation of arts organisations, and enable innovative programs that provide participatory opportunities for arts audiences.

Study within this program combines both the theory and practice of arts management, through a combination of reading, research and practical assignments.  Students have the opportunity to engage with a range of industry representatives, gain exposure to the work of cutting edge practitioners and thinkers, and integrate their work and learning.

Within this program students are able to specialise in areas of arts management such as project management, community based arts, and fundraising.

Students who successfully complete the Graduate Certificate of Arts and Entertainment Management will be eligible for entry into the Master of Arts and Entertainment Management.

Cloud (online) studies

Deakin offers many courses which can be studied by distance education overseas.

 

However, international students living in Australia must, in each compulsory trimester (that is, Trimesters 1 and 2), enrol in at least one unit that is offered as a Campus located unit and can, in addition enrol in units offered via Cloud (online). International students are not permitted to do more than 25% of their total course via Cloud (online) learning. Best practice is to enrol in mostly Campus located units in each compulsory trimester.

 

In a non-compulsory trimester (Trimester 3), international students may study Cloud (online) units only.

Fees and charges

Fee paying place - International (IFP)
A Fee paying place is one for which the University does not receive any government funding. As such, students enrolled in these places are required to contribute the full cost of their course.

Fees for international students apply to persons living in Australia with Temporary Resident status, provided that there is no limitation on study and persons living abroad who are not Australian citizens and do not have Permanent Resident status in Australia.

Equivalent Full Time Student Load (EFTSL)
EFTSL is the standard annual full time load. Eight credit points is the standard full time load for one year of study. If you are studying a graduate certificate of 4 credit points, your total course EFTSL is 0.5.

* The 'indicative annual course fee' cited has been provided as a guide only. It has been calculated on the basis of a typical enrolment of a student undertaking the course in 2014, and reflects the cost involved in undertaking a full-time quota of units within the specified discipline.
The actual fees charged by Deakin University will depend upon the discipline from which each individual unit is chosen, and may vary from the indicative course fee cited, particularly if units are chosen from a number of disciplines. The cost of each unit offered in 2014 can be viewed from the Unit Search.
Please note that the fees per unit/credit point may increase annually due to rises in the cost of course delivery and service.
Deakin assumes no responsibility for persons relying on 'indicative course fees' to calculate the total future cost of their course.
