Overview

The greatest strength of this course is the way it combines the theory and practice of both cultural heritage and museum-based collections. 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 (Part time) programme from the University of East Anglia  will prepare you for a variety of careers in the museum and heritage sectors. Alternatively, you can use it to launch yourself into advanced research into the rapidly advancing fields of museum studies and cultural heritage.
