Labour market

The various choices offered provide students with the opportunity to combine subjects in order to develop individual profiles. Students considering a more general profession within cultural administration might choose courses with a focus on method and theory (where general research skills are practiced), while students intending to work in a profession more closely related to dance might choose courses that provide explicit knowledge of dance alongside other skills training. The training thus meets the needs for different types of knowledge required to work as a cultural administrator, information officer, theatre producer, dance teacher, dramaturge, art teacher, dance consultant, etc.
