Students who do not wish to undertake the dissertation will be eligible for the award of a postgraduate certificate on completion of 4 15-credit modules.
Modules include: Museum theory and practice; heritage theory and practice; public engagement: inclusion, education and campaigns for social change; safeguarding for the future: ethical practices of collection management; sustainable development: public demand and public funding.
Assessment is done individually; assessment methods vary but generally include essays, presentations and a dissertation.
