Teaching and learning
You will be taught by the core academic team and learn from visiting speakers, including practicing artists and arts professionals.
Your taught modules are delivered sequentially and will include lectures; seminars; workshops; guided independent study; group work, and study visits that engage with contemporary practice nationally.
One to one personal tuition will provide access to pastoral support and space to reflect on your learning and professional development.
The Research module (MA only) allows you to take forward the interests, skills and expertise you develop throughout the programme. Our Research Retreat offers guidance in research design and methodology, and your personal supervisor will support the development of your self-directed research project.
Art Museum and Gallery Studies (MA; PGDip) culminates with an eight-week placement, during which you will work on a professional project designed in collaboration with our extensive network of museums and arts, cultural and heritage organisations.
Our dedicated School of Museum Studies building creates opportunities to meet students across our taught programmes, as well as staff and postgraduate researchers. Located on the University's North Campus, we are within easy reach of the city centre and railway station.
I’ve benefited greatly from the extensive range of module topics. They’ve filled my knowledge gaps and have enabled me to have a deeper and better understanding, not only of art museums and galleries, but of the whole art ecosystem.
