Museology

Museology refers to the study of museums and the history of their establishment and development. This study is caused by the concerns of the modern world about preserving artifacts from the past and present times for the next generations. It is not only the preservation that is the subject of Master in Museology programs, but also the great potential of the museum as a mechanism with unlimited educational potentials. Before museums, there were private collectors that usually kept the objects to themselves and treated the treasures of the past just as valuable objects. The museum is primarily an educational center, which is a relatively young concept that emerged along with renewed understanding of art and history. If you experience the wonderment that can happen when entering a museum, then a Master in Museology may be the degree for you.

A museum is a place of diachronic interaction between the past and the present; it stirs interest, awareness and curiosity of the visitors. And it is important to assist them, for example by the best decoration of an exhibition, so that the objects would have the strongest possible emotional impact on the visitor. This is one of the many skills that students develop in Master in Museology programs. Museology is a young science and it is open to use the latest inventions in order to ensure a strong and positive connection across ages. Students pursuing a Master in Museology will learn the techniques and methodologies for connecting with the range of populations, and ensuring that our history is not lost or forgotten
