Course introduction

Individual identity is built through aspects of culture such as language, clothing, traditions and art.  As for the social dimension, it is the shared similarities that connect people and allow them to coexist in peace. In accepting one another’s differences, the cultural dimensions of policy and administration, both tangible and intangible, become possible.


Looking at management in terms of culture is an integrated process involving both science and art and it is the aim of the stakeholders to realize the value of culture in all respects.


The Master of Arts Program in Management of Cultural Heritage and Creative Industries is therefore designed as a multidisciplinary program. The objective is to provide students with three key areas of knowledge, namely management, culture, and research. These areas are necessary for cultural managers at both the policy and executive levels. This is in accordance with international cultural operations such as the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization or UNESCO, which promotes cultural creativity based on standardized learning and intellectual cooperation.  UNESCO’s mission is to bring about societal change that recognizes justice, freedom, and human dignity. This is also in line with regional organizations such as ASEAN, with the main objective of promoting political, economic, social and cultural cooperation between member countries.


On the national front, Thailand’s Cultural Master Plan aims to preserve and protect the Thai identity in this milieu of cultural diversity and globalization. This includes investing in cultural capital to support sustainable development. For this reason, the management of cultural heritage and creative industries is necessary at the regional and national level.  Qualified personnel are essential in supporting cultural growth and expansion. This represents one factor in the development of human capital to achieve long-term sustainability.

● Knowledge, ability, and multidisciplinary skills to apply in the management of cultural heritage and creative industries.
