Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

We asked Ejiro O'Hare Stratton from Health Service Executive to give some advice for people considering this job:

I would advise having a degree in Human Resource Management and Industrial Relations. Professional training in nursing is necessary in order to understand patient care and what standards are required to provide quality care in an acute hospital setting.

One would also have to understand the value of planning, implementing and evaluating work practices in order to get the best out of employees. The person coming into the job would need to be patient, able to negotiate and work under pressure, as well as work on their own initiative.

Social?
Social 
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

Summary... header image

This course is designed to produce graduates who can function as creative managers in the creative and cultural industry sector both nationally and internationally.

By sharing classes with students from practice-oriented classes in art, design, music and media, learners on this programme will also, crucially, gain a practical sense of creative practitioners, and their values, motivations and culture. Graduates essentially will be able to look into, understand, and work between professionals involved in creative development and those responsible for commercialising the results.


The programme is a three-year modularised programme. It is an interdisciplinary programme consisting of existing modules drawn from across the College of Arts and Tourism and from the School of Marketing within the College of Business.

In Year 1, students will take a series of core modules and will be allowed to take one module from each of the following four areas: (i) Art and Design, (ii) Music and Drama, (iii) Media (iv) Languages.

In Year 2, students will develop a more critical approach to the theory of cultural industries and continue to develop their skills in the practical area of managing a cultural enterprise. Students will also take modules from Art and Design, Music and Drama, Media and one module from either Languages or one of the above areas.

In Year 3, the emphasis in the first semester will be on developing the students’ knowledge and skills in managing the complex relationship that all cultural enterprises have with the state, mass media, general public and funding agencies. Students will also take advanced modules offered by Art, Design, Media, Language and Music. In Semester 2 students will have a choice of completing a practical industry project through Real World Learning or writing a dissertation on a topic in the area of creative and cultural industries.
