Museums are increasingly important in a modern world with a wide range of research focusing on their history, collections, practices and social roles.
MLitt Museum Studies programme at University of Aberdeen makes much use of the University’s internationally important collections and museums to explore these issues and to give practical experience of working in a museum, working closely with professional as well as academic staff. Information about these collections and activities is available on The University of Aberdeen Museums website.
This degree provides suitable preparation for working in the museums, galleries and similar institutions, those who wish to conduct further research in Museum Studies or related fields. It would also be useful for those who are interested in developing ways of communicating academic work to a wider public.
