The course is taught alongside the Visual Culture MA and shares modules with this and with other MAs taught in the Department, offering you a broad theoretic context that can cover wider aspects of the arts. The teaching team are curators, museum and gallery professionals, as well as scholars and fine artists. Teaching methods include seminars, tutorials, practical sessions and workshops, together with independent, student-directed study. The course has a strong emphasis on vocational learning, and you are encouraged to undertake professional placements and internships.
Assessment methods include coursework (essays, oral presentations and professional project reports) as well as the final 10-12,000-word dissertation. There are no formal examinations.
You will normally be required to have a good first 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). Where English is not your first language, you will need an IELTS score of 6.5 overall and 7.0 in writing (or equivalent).
This course looks at the way that museums, galleries and other cultural institutions are changing to meet the needs of the 21st century. The MA has been designed for students who wish to work as curators, arts organisers, museum professional and other cultural managers and who want to know in particular how these institutions face contemporary issues. It looks at the changing role of cultural provision and how agencies, festivals and flexible organisations shape, house, fund, and disseminate culture today. The course also gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the contemporary debates about working practices in cultural institutions, and the changing context in which organisations operate.
