About the course

Museums establish powerful narratives of progress and primitivism, knowledge and ignorance, inclusion and exclusion. Our MA Museum Cultures with Curating combines study of the history and cultural significance of museums with opportunities for professional museum experience.

This MA gives you the chance to acquire key foundational skills in curating and a solid grasp of the related issues. You will benefit too from an intensive week studying current issues and practices in curating. You will meet the experts in London museums and galleries and engage in hands on activities including exhibition development, object interpretation and public engagement.

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