More than just studies

From our students

Monika Monika
Student life is an individual matter for each student. In my case, it is a combination of gaining knowledge, learning, acquiring experience, working, engaging in student self-government, participating in extracurricular activities both organized by the university and student clubs, but most importantly, spending time with friends not only on campus. It is precisely this balance that brings true satisfaction.

Culture and Media Management graduates acquire general and specialist knowledge, enriched with examples of its practical application at such a level that in institutions (organisations) of culture and media, they can take on the tasks of a middle-level manager (managing small teams, independently conducting small and medium-sized projects), as well as be prepared to undertake second-cycle studies. The person completing these studies should be prepared to work in cultural and media organisations of all sectors (public, private and non-governmental).

Graduates combine knowledge in management theory with knowledge about the most important areas of culture and the character of the media. In connection with the above, the natural place of work for graduates of these studies are, among others, theatres, museums, cultural centres, radio and television stations. At the same time, studies with such a profile prepare for journalistic work in advertising agencies, the IT sector and, more generally, the creative industries sector.

What alumni say about us

Alumni stories: Klaudia Półtorak-Misiura Alumni stories: Klaudia Półtorak-Misiura
I really loved my field of study. The combination of management, culture and media issues was a bull's eye and was in line with the new trends on the labour market. I have always been interested in painting and cinema, so on the one hand it was developing my interests, and on the other hand, learning how cultural and media institutions operate and are managed.

Alumni stories: Martyna Tarnawska Alumni stories: Martyna Tarnawska
I started working in the first year of my studies, in the second term. I was looking for inspiration and practice. The most important turning point was the lecture by Dr. Kreft, who told us about the strength and potential of social channels in marketing. I worked in several agencies for a year, including one of the biggest social listening tools – Brand24. All the time, however, I was looking for a place where I would have contact with other people, the opportunity to share my knowledge. At the end of my second year of studies, I got a job at a Cracow-based consulting company, Socjomania, where I have been working until today.
