MA in Arts Management
Whitecliffe Arts Management graduates are fully equipped to manage a broad spectrum of arts enterprises. As well as an in-depth understanding of contemporary best business practice, our graduates understand those special needs of artists and their art forms.
Artist, entrepreneur, intellectual, manager, educator, social worker, politician; an arts manager must wear many hats and so requires multiple skills.

Master of Fine Arts - Film and TelevisionThe Master of Fine Arts (Film and Television) gives experienced film and television practitioners, and high-level film students, the opportunity to engage in independent research in their field. The degree will enable student researchers to develop mastery and advance the practice and theory in their field.Candidates will propose, and with their supervisor, will develop their own topic for research. Most commonly the project will not be production based. For example, a suitable creative project might be writing a completed feature film script or researching an aspect of film and television practice. Projects may contain some elements of production where appropriate (e.g., a trailer or short animation).While primarily self-directed, students will work with one or two supervisors from the School of Film and Television’s academic staff. Selection of candidates depends on the school’s ability to match applicants’ projects with available supervision. All creative projects must be accompanied by a written dissertation (normally 12,000 words), which complements and illuminates the creative work and places it within a scholarly context....

Master of Arts – Theological Studies (Coursework)
Theology has always held a central place in the life and mission of the Christian community. Its central importance to the life of the community derives from the fact that it is through Theology that the Church comes to understand its own faith and explains that faith to others.
Education in Theology is therefore indispensable to a person’s development of faith as it is central to the exercise of all ministries, lay and ordained, directed toward to the communication and sharing of that faith.
It explores, among others, such important issues as the nature of God, the kind of God revealed for us in Jesus Christ, the nature of personal identity and of humanity, human origins and destiny, Christian community and God’s presence with us now in the Spirit....
