The School of Arts Management and Humanities has been in existence since 2007 and had its first set of graduates in 2011. The programme aims to provide training for persons who wish to work in the area of arts management or administration, and for persons already involved in the management and administration of arts and cultural organizations. The aim is to offer a distinctive combination of theory; studio and project-based courses as well as hands on experience.
The philosophy of the B.A. Arts Management programme is to create an environment which places the students’ academic development within a cultural, social, religious, ethical and artistic context, facilitating synergy with creative industry stakeholders both formal and informal to steer programme quality and maintain relevance. The programme also aims to build a reservoir of arts managers and administrators for the industry and business with the vision, foresight and creativity to move the arts forward in Jamaica and the Caribbean.
