This well-established Masters programme focuses on the concerns dominating the heritage and museum professions and has been designed to meet the demand for highly skilled professionals with the necessary research and analytical skills.
Key areas of investigation include policy concerns relating to heritage, museum and cultural sectors in the UK, Ireland and internationally; analysis of the social, economic and cultural contexts of museums and heritage; management issues relating to museums and heritage sites; and impact of digital technologies on the heritage experience.
We will assist you in establishing voluntary work placements, helping you gain valuable experience. In recent years we have helped secure placements with National Trust, local museums, arts centres and archives.
Our course is often popular internationally, with students coming from Ireland, GB, USA, Canada and France, bringing a range of insights that add to the diversity of the experience.
We also have a thriving graduate network working in learning and outreach in museums, exhibition design, archives, heritage development, the cultural sector and PhD research.
