Art Museum and Gallery Practice

The Art Museum and Gallery Practice MPrac is designed to provide you with a clear understanding of the frequently complex theoretical and practical issues that face those involved in art museums and galleries. You will study a blend of theory with work-based placements to extend and complement your Art Museum and Gallery Studies MA. It is the first course of its kind anywhere to offer this blend of learning.
