University of Leicester
Learning and Visitor Studies in Museums and Galleries
Students study historical, current and emerging theories, concepts, issues, techniques and practice in education and visitor studies in museums and cognate fields. The programme provides training both for professionals involved in museum education, learning and visitor studies and for those who wish to undertake further research in the field. 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.
A 1st or 2nd Class Honours degree or equivalent, from a recognised university, together with evidence of engagement with, or commitment to, the museum/gallery/heritage sector (or appropriate transferable skills). We consider candidates without an Honours degree who have significant relevant work experience; applicants may be required to complete a written assessment as part of their application. If the 1st language is not English, applicants must meet the University�s English language requirements.
Modules include: education in the museum: frameworks for practice; learning in the museum; developing learning resources; visitor studies: evaluation and research.
The course is continuously assessed. Students who achieve the required standard and who wish to work towards a Masters degree, complete a dissertation.
