You’ll be invited to think about museums and cultural heritage from a global perspective, whilst drawing on the wealth of nationally-recognised institutions across the East Anglian region.

You’ll benefit from studying within the multi-disciplinary department of Art History and World Art Studies, learning from academic staff who approach museum studies and cultural heritage from a range of outlooks, including art historical, archaeological, and anthropological perspectives.

You’ll also have the chance to build your professional skills with the compulsory Museum and Heritage Practice module. This comprises a work-based placement and a series of sessions that include presentations by senior industry experts.

The Cultural Heritage and Museum Studies programme from the University of East Anglia will prepare you for a variety of careers in the museum and heritage sectors.
