The interdisciplinary master’s course provides students with skills in the various areas of art education and cultural management. In addition to a systematic basic knowledge of art history and business administration, comprehensive theoretical and practical knowledge of entrepreneurial thinking is conveyed and art-scientific concepts of communication in museums and art dealers are taught and tested. The inter-faculty dovetailing of the courses as well as the strategic cooperation with a large number of non-university cooperation partners from the diverse art and cultural landscape on the Rhine and Ruhr form the supporting pillars of the course. In addition to a fixed number of lecturers, the master’s course also includes changing lecturers from the national and international art and culture scene who are well-known in their field. In addition to the diverse range of university courses, public lectures, conferences and discussions take place at regular intervals, which take up and expand the content of the course.
The course primarily serves to provide scientific and practical qualifications in university research and in the arts and culture. In addition to subject-specific knowledge, basic knowledge of business administration, human resources management, cultural marketing and art law as well as art history, curating, exhibition management, art education and the art trade is imparted.
