This programme consists of compulsory and specialist modules and an optional module.
All optional modules correspond to curatorial disciplines found in many museums, and include a practical project, often working closely with museum professionals in museums in the North East. There is an eight-week placement in a museum and finally a piece of individual research for presentation as a 12-15,000-word dissertation. Teaching emphasises a practical approach, dealing with real objects, museums and situations.
Students enrolled in the Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip) complete all the taught modules and the work placement but not the dissertation.
