About the course

Our Museum Studies course covers a broad range of issues encountered in museum work. We'll provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to move into or enhance a career in museums. You'll gain a competitive edge by curating group exhibitions or organising and delivering complex education and learning events within one of the North East’s flagship venues; the Great North Museum: Hancock

We've been educating museum professionals since 1993 and our course is well established internationally. We encourage a hands-on approach, involving major input from museum professionals working regionally, nationally and internationally. These professionals range from small, independent museums to those who curate national and international collections.
