This programme aims to provide you with the knowledge and skills to move into or enhance a career in galleries and art museums.
Two specialist pathways are available, leading to different awards:
* MA and PGDip Art Museum and Gallery Studies: Curatorship
* MA and PGDip Art Museum and Gallery Studies: Education
They offer a fast-track route to a professional qualification and are amongst the most successful art museum and gallery studies programmes internationally as well as benefitting from a thriving gallery scene in the region.
The programme encourages a hands-on approach and involves major input by art museum and gallery professionals from the region and beyond, ranging from those who work in small, independent contemporary galleries to those who curate national art collections or internationally significant exhibitions.
Graduates from this programme can pursue a career in the art museum or gallery sector or conduct further research.
Following the completion of the MA, we also offer the opportunity for a work-based Master in Art Museum and Gallery Practice (MPrac). This is a supervised and mentored work-based placement in an institution, organisation or agency related to art museums or art galleries.
MA: 12 months full time; 24 months part time PGDip: 9 months full time; 18 months part time (Modules also available on Continuing Professional Development (CPD) basis)
Fees per academic year 2013-14
UK and EU: full time £5,500 (MA); £3,670 (PGDip) part time £2,750 (MA); £1,835 (PGDip)
International: full time £11,750 (MA); £11,420 (PGDip)
Both specialist pathways have shared compulsory taught modules (including a dissertation) and a tailored eight-week employer-based placement normally in an art museum or gallery.
For this pathway you take two specialist modules in which you will curate an exhibition at the Hatton Gallery: Great North Museum.
This pathway prepares you for the role of art educator and uses a range of pedagogical practices to enable you to work in informal educational settings including museums, galleries, universities, community centres, and other `alternative´ educational venues.
You take two specialist modules that culminate in the design and delivery of a student-led educational event hosted by the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art.
Students enrolled on the PGDip complete all the taught modules and the employer-based placement but not the dissertation.

A minimum of an upper-second-class Honours degree, or an international equivalent, in a relevant art-related subject at university. These include:
* art history
* visual studies
* fine art
* design and photography.
Basic familiarity with art history is particularly important because you will be required to work confidently with art historical concepts and concerns as they pertain to the art museum and gallery context. It is not necessary for you to have a full degree in an art-related subject, but it should be a significant component of your degree.
We also consider applications from professionals with considerable work experience in the art museum/gallery sector. Ideally you should have some gallery or museum experience, for example as a volunteer.
Applicants whose first language is not English require IELTS 6.5 with at least 6.0 in writing, TOEFL 90 (Internet-based), or equivalent.
