Program Description:

The Aberdeen MLitt Museum Studies provides you with a rich combination of the academic study of museums and collections since the Renaissance with the practical experience of thinking about and working in museums today.

Museums are increasingly important in a modern world with a wide range of research focusing on their history, collections, practices and social roles. The MLitt in Museum Studies makes much use of the University’s internationally important collections and museums to explore these issues and to give practical experience of working in a museum, working closely with professional as well as academic staff. Information about these collections and activities is available on The University of Aberdeen Museums website.

An important feature of the Museum Studies programme is its extensive use of the University’s museums and collections and involvement of both academic staff in a range of related disciplines such as Anthropology, Archaeology, Education and History of Art and the professional staff of the University’s museums. The teaching of the Museum Studies courses is in small groups, with one-to-one supervision for the Dissertation and Project.
