The Four Focus Areas of the Curriculum
The curriculum of the Arts Management program at JMLU focuses on the following four areas:
"Thought Leadership": This focus provides insights into various areas of cultural production, including popular music, visual arts, and media arts, offering a solid cultural studies education to promote qualified communication and exchange. This meets the growing demand for expertise in this field.
Digital Culture: Working conditions, financing, and business models in the arts and culture sector, intellectual property rights, and modern publishing are essential knowledge in the practice of Arts Management.
Technology: Due to rapid technological development, the program continuously adjusts qualifications, focus areas, and projects. This includes technology foresight, roadmapping, trend reports, and building interfaces with developers. In the field of digital culture, the XR industry, consisting of VR (Virtual Reality) and AR (Augmented Reality), is rapidly evolving. Streaming technologies, new exhibition formats in the Metaverse, and blockchain-based artworks (NFTs), along with their effectiveness, are discussed.
