Graduate Testimonial

"On a professional level I found the practical nature of the modules included in the MA in Arts & Heritage Management to be of   huge benefit.  I co-founded and chair a heritage based festival now in its fourth year. The course gave me the tools and confidence necessary to deal with the variety of stakeholders (ranging from volunteers to government agencies) needed to successfully stage a heritage project or event. On a personal level I thoroughly enjoyed the course and appreciated the varying experiences and viewpoints of both my classmates and tutors."

James Doherty, Graduate MA in Arts in Heritage Management, is chair of the 1848 Tricolour Celebration an annual celebration that commemorates the first flying of the Irish National flag.
