Museum Studies

The course stimulates students to engage critically and creatively with wide ranging ideas and issues and to develop both philosophical approaches and the practical methods and skills necessary to become creative and effective museum and gallery professionals. These interdisciplinary programmes are student focused and cater for a wide range of learning styles and approaches. A Master of Science (MSc) can be awarded in preference to a Master of Arts (MA) where the dissertation concerns a science collection or museum, or where the nature of the investigation can be termed scientific. This course is also run with Hong Kong University which has been designed especially for those based in or near Hong Kong.

Entry requirements

Normally at least a good 2nd Class Honours degree or its equivalent, or a minimum of 5 years' relevant work experience. In addition, many applicants have some experience, often in a voluntary capacity, of working in museums, galleries or related organisations.

Assessment methods

All modules are assessed. Students who achieve the required standard and who wish to work towards the Master's degree, complete a Master's dissertation.
