Course Structure 

Trimester one

The course begins by giving you a context of the cultural industry you’ll be preparing to enter, along with insights into its theoretical and practical landscape. You’ll gain core skills to enhance your academic practice. You’ll be given an overview of the economic and cultural landscape that a producer inhabits, allowing you to comprehend where you interact and engage with the industry. You’ll examine how the producer fits into a collaborative team, allowing you to reflect and explore your own professional identity and knowledge as a producer.

Trimester two

Trimester two gives you the collaborative model to explore your artistic ideas and begin planning for your own project or production. To underpin your preparation for the planning and delivery of your project or production, you’ll learn key skills that are essential for you - your "producer's toolkit" - a range of core elements that enables your creative and business practice as a producer.

Trimester three

The final trimester offers the framework for your independent work as a producer to be fully realised. You’ll embark on a major project of your choice to the completion of your MA.

Job Opportunity Potential

We’ve got lots to share with you and to help we have split our work into three elements which will support you with:

  • Exploring your options
  • Gaining valuable experience
  • Progressing your ideas and career plans

At Bath Spa we believe you are continually exploring your options and experiencing different pathways to progression, but that this journey is not linear. It keeps on going throughout your time with us and when you leave. Some of our services cross all three areas and allow you to explore, experience and progress all in one, such as The Bath Spa Award.

We encourage you to read resources and attend events across all stages of Explore, Experience and Progress as they will offer beneficial insight and development opportunities regardless of the current stage you are at in your career journey.
