Program Description:

The Museum Studies program (MSP) seeks to provide students with a strong theoretical background and professional understanding of museum origins, ideologies, changing philosophies and current practices. Museology examines the role and function of museums, the history of museums and museum work and the theory of collections in terms of their development, management, preservation, accessibility and use. It also involves theories and methods of communication, education and exhibition as well as the implications of the physical and organisational structure of museums. The Museum Studies program provides students with both a comprehensive knowledge of the function of museums in their broader social and cultural context and a methodology for research.
