Information about studying in the Master's Degree Programme in Cultural Policy

agora_aulaThe focus of this social sciences based programme lies in the ways in which culture in a wider sense changes and shapes people's lives. This includes changes in culture and art production, media technologies, language, education, economy, politics and policy. In the intersection of various transformation processes it is crucial to analyse how cultural institutions such as museums, art institutions, education, media and administration define their roles and reorganise their policies and practices. Furthermore, the programme addresses issues of cultural identities, such as ethnicity, race, national identity and gender, and examines how they shape and are shaped in the changing social landscape. The social, political and cultural changes also shape the ways in which collective identities and cultural memory are constructed.
