We aim to provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to establish or progress your successful career working in art museums or galleries. You will gain unparalleled experience and a competitive professional edge by curating group exhibitions or organising and delivering complex education and learning events in high-profile public venues.
The course encourages a hands-on approach and involves major input by art museum and gallery professionals from the region and beyond. This input ranges from those who work in small, independent contemporary galleries to those who curate national art collections and internationally significant exhibitions.
