Description

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)

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.

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.
Curatorship pathway
For this pathway you take two specialist modules in which you will curate an exhibition at the Hatton Gallery: Great North Museum.
Education pathway
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.
