Museum Practice & Management - Online

Ulster University - Belfast

Museum Practice & Management - Online

Museums are vital cultural destinations, where we go to get a deeper understanding of place, communities, and how we connect with each other. They are places of discovery and learning, with potential for challenge and cultural activism. Key aspects of this programme include:

- Understanding the context in which museums operate

- The learning and communication role of the museum

- Planning and development for the museum

- Caring for and developing our collections

The programme shares best practice and expertise in various aspects of museum studies, cultural management, exhibition practice, and care of collections. The modules draw upon the expectations of the museum standards programmes in the UK and Ireland and present these within an international context. Lectures include discussion points on key issues concerning the museum profession globally, enabling you to engage with your peers and your tutor. The course team are either senior academics in Ulster University or senior staff in the museum.
