About

The Museum and Heritage Studies (Advanced) program at the Australian National University draws on our strong connections with Canberra’s leading cultural and collecting institutions to prepare you for an innovative career in this field.   

Overview

The Museum and Heritage Studies (Advanced) program at the Australian National University offers a range of specialisations in either museum or heritage studies. Within the museum specialisation you’ll learn traditional curatorship and collections management, in addition to new areas such as such as social inclusion, citizenship and community engagement, social activism and museums, Indigenous curation and collection, and innovative visitor studies.  

The cultural and environmental heritage specialisation offers you the opportunity to analytically address and assess national and international policy and practices in the context of a critical framework that explores the political and social phenomenon and impacts of heritage and its management and conservation.
