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.
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.
This program prepares graduates for leadership roles across the range of cultural organisations, including: festivals, mega-events, community events, facilities, publishing houses, music venues, performing arts, visual arts, film and video, radio and television, cultural heritage and museums, and communications technology organisations.
Opportunities also exist within the private leisure, arts management and marketing companies.
To satisfy the requirements of the Graduate Certificate a student must complete 4 credit points comprising 2 credit points of core units and 2 credit points of elective units.
Students may undertake this course full time only if they commence in Trimester 1.
