As guest lecturers (especially for the Management of Culture and Cinema and Video Art) there are highly qualified professionals working in various culture and art institutions, creative associations and other institutions of higher education. High-class foreign lecturers deliver lectures and hold seminars as part of the Subprogramme of the Management of Culture.

The academic staff who work full-time at the Latvian Academy of Culture cover approximately 70 % of the programme.

2.6. The Material and Technical Provision of the Study Programme

The MA Subprogramme is carried out by the supervisors of the MA studies, departments and programmes of the Latvian Academy of Culture.

The studies take place at 24, Ludzas Street and 46, Dzirnavu Street.

A library, a videoteque, a room for film and video editing, technology for visual presentation, a computer room and copying facilities all are available to MA students.

The placement of the students of the Management of Culture for practice sessions is effected in various culture institutions in Latvia: theatres, music and culture centres, local governmental and private offices.

Classes for the students of Museology are held at the Latvian Museum Department.

The students of Theatre Art perform their creative work at the National and the Daile Theatres.

The methodological provision of the study programme is basically reflected in Paragraph 2.7 of the Self-assessment of the BA Programme of the Latvian Academy of Culture.

Additional work in the MA Subprogramme of the Management of Culture is provided by the Education Coordination Centre of the Management of Culture created with the help of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Latvia (the head: L.Ķestere). The Centre offers methodological material and special literature and invites guest lecturers.

II.THE STRUCTURE OF THE STUDY PROGRAMME

The MA Programme is conceptually aligned with the BA Programmes of the Latvian Academy of Culture. They consist of:

Subjects of Part A or Compulsory subjects. They constitute 60 credit points or 75%.

They provide extended studies in the theories of culture and art, semiotics and anthropology as well as in the area of the chosen artistic creative work. The programme includes also profound acquisition of one foreign language.

The MA paper is also included in this part.

Subjects of Part B or Compulsory (Choice possible). They constitute 20 credit points or 25%.

These subjects offer the methodology of the application of specific individual theoretical knowledge, cognition, research and artistic creative skills.

Practice in particular areas is also included in this part.

To obtain an MA degree the students shall:

  1. pass examinations and tests in the subjects of Parts A and B, acquiring no fewer than 60 credit points,

  2. present an MA Paper (special regulations),

  3. pass an MA Examination in the Theories of Culture and Art.

III.STUDY PROVISION AND MANAGEMENT

The MA Subprogramme is implemented both at the expense of a sponsoring organization or their own expense. Up to the academic year 2000/2001 there was a partial tuition fee not exceeding Ls 400 per year. In the current academic year 39% of MA students study at the expense of the state budget.

The MA Study Subprogrammes are implemented by the departments of the Latvian Academy of Culture and their management is provided by MA Studies (the head: Mārīte Lapiņa) and the specific supervisors of the Subprogrammes: Ivars Bērziņš in the Management of Culture, Astrīda Rogule in Museology, Ansis Epners in Cinema and Video Art, and Pēteris Krilovs in Theatre Art.

The supervisors of the Subprogrammes elaborate and effect the strategy and tactics of the Subprogrammes together with the heads of the departments, the head of MA Studies and the Prorector. Research and methodological provision are ensured by the supervisors of the Subprogrammes.

All the programmes are discussed and approved by the Senate of the Latvian Academy of Culture.

The study management is provided by the Study Department.

The basic methodology applied in the study process is:

  • Lectures

  • Seminars

  • Independent and individual work. Individual classes are specially planned for the MA students in Theatre Art and Cinema and Video Art.

  • Workshops and practical classes (the elaboration of projects and the organization of activities for the Subprogramme in Management of Culture; exhibitions of creative work in the Subprogrammes in Theatre Art and Cinema and Video Art)

  • Practice sessions.

The assessment of studies may be:

  • Oral

  • Written

  • Creative exhibitions

  • Reports on practice sessions

The rights to pass tests and examinations are set by the rules of each programme. When obtaining a negative assessment at a test or an examination the MA student has the right to repeat it two more times (the third time would require an extended commission).

The MA paper is assessed by the tutor, reviewers and the MA Examination Commission.

The knowledge of MA students is assessed according to the 10 point system.

  1. COMPARISON OF THE MA SUBPROGRAMME WITH SIMILAR PROGRAMMES ABROAD

The MA Subprogramme is an original programme which has been designed according to the current situation in culture and education in Latvia and the current and future needs of research in art. The originality is based on the fact that up to now there have been no analogous programmes for MA studies in Latvia.

Suggestions from similar foreign programmes have been introduced in the structure and models of the programmes:

1)Scandinavian countries: the University of Tampere, Finland,

the University of Oslo, Norway

the University of Aarhus, Denmark

2) USA: the University of Los Angeles

3) France: the G. Verne University of Picardy in Amien

4) Germany: the Higher Theatre and Music School in Hamburg

5) Britain: City University in London

6) the Czech Republic: Janaček Music and Art Academy in Brno

7) Lithuania: Vitautas the Great University in Kaunas, the Klaipeda University

8) Estonia: Tartu University

The Latvian Academy of Culture has drawn upon the experience of Nordic countries, Lithuania, Estonia and the USA and has followed the principle of delivering a relatively high percentage of theoretical lectures and classes in the study Subprogrammes as well as immediate practical application of theoretical knowledge in creative work.

The experience of Germany and Britain is significant for the Management of Culture when designing separate parts of the study Subprogrammes, for instance, the close connection of studies with practical work and considerable involvement of guest lecturers-practitioners during the study period.

VI. RESEARCH AND CREATIVE WORK OF THE ACADEMIC STAFF AND STUDENTS

The MA Programme of the Latvian Academy of Culture is designed to facilitate the research and creative activities of the students as well as their involvement in the state research activities parallelly with continuing the study process in the Theory of Culture after their BA Studies. The students of the MA Studies in the Management of Culture master their skills and abilities getting involved in the projects of the management of culture at different levels. The academic staff extends their research and creative potential working within the MA Studies and creating new study courses and in the speciality of the Management of Culture by supervising projects. The MA students extend their knowledge both during the organised exchange and individual study programmes at foreign universities.

The MA students’ interest in research in the Theory of Culture is assured by the continuation of their studies in the Doctoral Study programme at the Latvian Academy of Culture. They research both culturological and interdisciplinary issues: “Baltu pirmskrsitietisko pasaules uzskatu figuratīvo formu salīdzinoša analīze” by R. Muktupāvela (“The Comparative Analysis of the Figurative Forms of the Pre-Christian World Outlook of the Balts”), “Urbānā paradigma 20.-30. gadu latviešu literatūrā” by S. Čaklā-Lazduzieda (“The Urban Paradigm in the Latvian Literature During the 20’s-30’s”), “Mīta interpretācijas 20. gs. pirmās puses latviešu un Rietumeiropas dramaturģijā” by Z. Šiliņa (“The Interpretations of Myth in Latvian and Western European Drama in the First Half of the 20th Century”) and others who continue their research on the themes they started while in the BA Studies. The new researchers have published articles and participated in international conferences both as the students of the MA studies and as Doctoral students. Their works have won prizes in competitions among the new researchers (the prize of Z. Mauriņa of the Latvian Academy of Sciences).

The research interests of the MA students are facilitated by annual student conferences, which are oriented to interdisciplinary research. Students from other arts universities are also involved. The range of research reflecting students’ interests is very wide: from research in the Baltic mythology and literary theory till cultural anthropological themes and the applications of social methods in situation analysis. The recent conferences were devoted to different aspects of the phenomenon of the fin de siecle in Latvian and Europe and culture, putting the phenomena of the fin de siecle of the 19th century next to phenomena of the fin de siecle of the 20th century. The theme of the students’ conference was extended and it was followed by an interdisciplinary conference of the Latvian Academy of Culture devoted to the issue of decadence. The MA students (M. Valtere and others) were reading their papers parallelly with the teachers of the Latvian Academy of Culture and other institutions of higher education (P. Laķis, R. Vilciņš, S. Lasmane, S. Radzobe and others). Part of the most successful papers read at students’ conferences have been published in collections of works (“Kultūras krustpunktu meklējumi” (“The Search for the Crossroads of Culture”), 1998 and others) and in periodicals (“Izglītība un Kultūra” (“Education and Culture”), “Karogs” and others). The MA students have been successful in conferences organised by the Latvian Academy of Culture in cooperation with the University of Latvia and the Goethe Institute (1999, 2000), getting involved not only not only in research activities but also in the organisation of conferences (D. Hanovs, D. Laipniece).

The MA Works of the students have won prizes in competitions for the best MA Work many times (the MA students of the Latvian Academy of Culture have won K. Dziļleja’s prize several times; the recent winners are K. Kuplais, M. Valtere, D. Boroduško, Z. Pencele and others).

The teachers of the Latvian Academy of Culture are involved in research work in different research fields extending over the interests of one academic institution. For more details about the interests, publications and activities of the teachers of the Latvian Academy of Culture refer to the self-assessment of the BA Study programme and the CVs of the teachers.

VII. QUALITY PROVISION

The quality of the study process is facilitated by:

  • Mutual visiting of lectures and classes (by colleagues) and visiting of lectures and classes by the Head of the MA Studies and the supervisors of the Subprogrammes.

  • Indirect control: the results of tests and examinations, work assessment at the meetings of the departments, MA Examinations and work presentation, lecturers from other universities participating at the examinations.

  • Student opinion polls, meetings of the administration and the supervisors of the Subprogrammes with MA students.

The growth of the lecturers is facilitated by research, methodological and creative work. Its promotion and coordination is effected by the departments, MA studies, Assistant to the Rector in research and the general trend of the development of the Latvian Academy of Culture.
