Museum Studies is not something you may grow up wanting to study, however, it is a fantastic way to learn about art, aesthetics, archaeological objects, business, and history all in one subject. Even better, to be able to study it in a country that is rich with artefacts and culture. Each of our partners that offer Museum Studies, brings something different to their respective programs. It is important to know what you would like to focus on (art museums, business aspects of running a museum, classics, etc.) in order to make the right decision for yourself.

As an undergraduate student, you can expect more of a comprehensive program that focuses broadly on museums and another closely related subject. This could be History of Art with Museum Studies at the University of East Anglia or the University of Leeds or Museum and Classical Studies at the University of Reading. Interested in learning about and creating the exhibits that objects are displayed in? The University of Lincoln’s Design for Exhibition and Museums may be the choice for you. This is a really great course for those of you who are interested in a certain historical/art subject but would like to broaden the scope to master something else as well. It also opens the door to many different master’s programs in the humanities subjects.... [-]
