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.
The course offers a flexible mixture of taught modules and a possible work-based placement, providing you with a unique blend of theoretical knowledge, understanding and practical experience.
The first year of the MPrac is the Art Museum and Gallery Studies MA, which must be completed successfully before undertaking the second year extended work-based placement.
You will have input from professional and academic experts with substantial experience of working in the museum sectors in various countries.
The course is based in the School of Arts and Cultures. It is also affiliated with the International Centre for Cultural and Heritage Studies (ICCHS), a leading academic centre for research and teaching in museum, gallery, and heritage studies. ICCHS has a thriving, high-profile interdisciplinary research community made up of postgraduate research students and experienced academic researchers who are key figures in their fields.
We are based at our city centre campus with work placements or work related-projects usually taking place off campus. Part time study consists of the same modules and options as in the full time course, but spread over a longer period.
