The Arts and Cultural Management Professional Doctorate programme at The University of Manchester aims to develop dynamic and interactive knowledge practices and outcomes that will have an impact across academic and non-academic contexts. It will support the development of reflective practice that can respond to and influence the complex, unpredictable and shifting social and cultural contexts within which practitioners operate.
The programme introduces practitioners to a range of dynamic and challenging concepts and methods with which to reflect critically and constructively on their professional practice.
The programme will be taught within a learning environment and methodology informed by the principles of reflective practice, action or practice-based research and enquiry based learning. This pedagogical approach enables students' professional context to become a primary research resource.
Officially accredited and/or recognized by the Privy Council, The University of Manchester is a very large (uniRank enrollment range: 35,000-39,999 students) coeducational higher education institution.
