Museum studies by distance learning receives a revamp

The distance learning programme has been undergoing some exciting changes over the past year, including a substantial update of its Museum Studies course. With new study materials available and a new online delivery platform, the course feels fresher and more engaging than ever before! New learning outcomes and media content means that the distance learning Museum Studies course is more in-sync with the campus-based experience, whilst maintaining the flexibility that makes distance learning so convenient.

The core modules of the new course are: The Museum and Change, Designing for Creative Lives, Objects and Collections: Care, Management, Curation and Engaging Audiences. In addition, students are able to specialise thanks to improved optionality on the new course, with optional modules including: Lifelong Learning, Heritage, Digital, Museums and Contemporary Issues and Museums and the Natural Environment.

With PGCert, PGDip and MA/MSC qualifications available, we expect the new course to draw in an even wider variety of distance learning students, and we look forward to welcoming them to Museum Studies in the near future.
