University of Kent
This programme develops your skills and provides experience relevant to a career in curating. Based at the School of Arts Studio 3 Gallery, you are involved in all aspects of the running of the Gallery. You work closely with partner organisations such as Canterbury museums and the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA). The compulsory modules provide an overview of the history of collecting and exhibitions through a series of case studies, taking advantage of our proximity to major London collections. We also cover theoretical issues relating to curating and museology. Students also develop your own project working within the Gallery�s exhibition programme. Optional modules focus on providing practice-based opportunities for developing curatorial skills. The programme is delivered by a combination of staff at the School of Arts and specialist visiting lecturers.
An upper second-class honours degree or better, usually in a relevant humanities subject. In certain circumstances, the School will consider candidates who have not followed a conventional education path or who may have relevant experience in the industry. These cases are assessed individually by the Director of Graduate Studies.
Assessment is through a combination of coursework essays, critical logbooks and practice- based exercises. A long dissertation is required for the exhibition development and design module.
