This programme also enables international collaborations to take place across the academic and professional field of museum studies.
The Museums and Galleries in Education MA programme offered at the University College London (UCL) enables students to carry out a practical and theoretical study on education in museums and galleries. University-based sessions are supplemented by teaching sessions at national, regional and university collections.
Additionally students gain flexible access to historic and contemporary sites and full-time students have a 20-day research-based placement in a museum, gallery or heritage site.
Graduates of this programme are currently working as: education officers at historical sites; digital programme managers in national art and design museums; heads of learning, heads of interpretation and curation in museums and galleries, and heads of research in museums/galleries in the UK, continental Europe, and internationally.
