Birkbeck, University of London Department of History of Art

About the course

Museums have been of enormous importance in shaping empires, nations and cities, and their collections are connected to wider histories of conflict and social change. Our MA Museum Cultures with Collections Management combines study of the history and cultural significance of museums with opportunities for professional museum experience.

This MA will give you a solid grasp of foundational skills and key issues in collections management. During an intensive week studying current issues and practices you will meet experts in London museums and galleries and engage in hands on activities including documentation, cataloguing and issuing loan requests.

You will also have the opportunity to undertake a 10-week supervised work placement in a museum, gallery or archive. Previous work
