What will you study?
The Museum and Gallery Studies course at Kingston University examines contemporary issues and practices, including those relating to collections management, interpretation, audiences and exhibition. You will study taught modules covering critical analysis and creative practice, and conduct research around the broad themes and subjects addressed by each module. As well as working with our own in-house museums - Stanley Picker Gallery and Dorich House Museum - we work with four external institutions each year to develop real-world museum projects.
Our partners include the Museum of London, National Maritime Museum, V&A, English Heritage, Turner's House Trust, Brooklands Museum, Salisbury Museum, Kingston Museum and Heritage Service, Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art and Freud Museum, London.
