University of Westminster

Museums, Galleries and Contemporary Culture

This course looks at the changing roles of cultural institutions in the 21st century. It has been designed for students wishing to work as curators, arts organisers, museum professionals and other contemporary cultural managers, and has been developed through the University's close relationships with museums and galleries in London. You will learn about the challenges faced by museums and galleries, how they confront them and how they are developing innovative practices in relation to their collections, exhibitions and audiences. Much of the teaching takes place in collaboration with partner institutions, working on site with curators and professionals from the sector.

Entry requirements

You will normally be required to have a good 1st degree or equivalent. Applications from mature candidates with demonstrable relevant work experience and relevant professional qualifications are welcomed. In these cases, you may be required to undertake a written entrance test in the form of a short 1,500-word essay, and may also be required to assemble a work experience portfolio (consisting of testimonials, job descriptions etc).
