As the art world pivots and adapts to new modes of cultural production and to new ways of conducting business, this is the most advantageous time to gain a graduate level education to prepare for an industry that continues to innovate and grow internationally. Unique to this academic year, Master’s programs will be delivered online in January and February 2021 with in-person studies commencing in London in March 2021, as public health advice allows.
