This is for you if... you want a flexible, part-time course that allows you to develop skills and expertise in addressing contemporary social issues in museums and galleries.
Teaching and learning
You will be supported by a dedicated team of academics, tutors and support staff. You will be allocated a personal tutor who can advise you on a range of issues and support you. In addition, for each module you will be allocated a module tutor who is a specialist in that particular field. Your module tutor will support you with academic enquiries as well as your essay plans, marking your assignments and providing you with detailed feedback.
Our flexible learning course has been designed with different learning styles and access requirements in mind. The flexibility in both progressing through the course, and in accessing the material through different formats anticipates a diverse student body and offers choice in how you are taught and assessed.
Time is built into the structure for you to complete assignments and wider reading on areas of particular interest to you, as well as self-directed study visits. Tutorials with experienced museum professionals are available at various points in the course.
You are invited to join an optional Summer School offering live online or face-to-face teaching, discussions, group activities and the chance to network with fellow part-time learners and staff.
If you are completing a dissertation as part of the MA/MSc course, you will receive four supervisions with your allocated tutor, with support offered between supervisions as and when needed.
There are between one and three pieces of assessed coursework for each of the core modules. Together, these form a carefully designed, broad range of assignments including essays, project work, discussions, and presentations as well as practical exercises. Your module tutor will provide you with detailed feedback on each assignment you submit.
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.
