MA in Art, Law and Economy – Next intake October 2012
Discover the New MA Programme offered by the School of Humanities at the International Hellenic University!
The Master of Arts (MA) in Art, Law and Economy explores and highlights the functional interdependence between art, law and the economy. Particular emphasis will be placed upon the legal, financial and political considerations and the corresponding regulatory approaches implemented in Europe and elsewhere concerning the creation of works of art, the art trade, the operation of the markets concerned, the function of intellectual property law at the EU and international level, the protection of cultural heritage and protection against unlawfully acquired works of art.
The programme adopts a multi-disciplinary approach and is addressed to graduates of various academic backgrounds, including law, economics, political science, history of art, philosophy, etc., who wish to specialize in the interrelation between art, law and the economy.
This Master’s Programme will give you the opportunity to study in an international environment, given the multi-national mix of our students. . Moreover, Thessaloniki itself is a multicultural student metropolis throbbing with life. Cultural events and festivals take place throughout the year: Cinema and Documentary Festivals, Contemporary Art Biennale, Photography Biennale, music festivals…and so much more..
We aim at providing students with:
the specialized legal, financial and cultural background to pursue a successful career in academia and research, private organizations in the art trade, museums, art collections, law firms practicing in the field or public sector organizations involved in the management, legal protection and re-claiming of works of art and support generally;
legal and financial expertise on the operation and management of art markets (including sales of works of art, art portfolio management, art auctions, etc.);
in-depth knowledge on the national and international legal framework on national heritage, monument preservation, art loans or archaeology laws;
intellectual property law expertise within a globalized art market;
insights on those fields of law (constitutional, civil, penal, etc.) affecting the legal protection of works of art.
