Museum Studies

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

The Museum Studies MA is designed primarily for those that wish to take part in the museum profession or else pursue PhD studies on museological topics. It gives a balance of practice and philosophy for pupils from a broad range of academic backgrounds and cultures.

Europe is the sixth largest continent and includes 47 countries and assorted dependencies, islands and territories. It is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the south, Asia to the east, and the Atlantic Ocean to the West.
