Co-ordinator: Theano Moussouri
Major Contributors: Rodney Harrison, Georgios Alexopoulos, Barbara Knorpp, Tim Schadla-Hall and UCL Museums & Collections

The Museum Studies MA programme provides a broad academic and professional training in all aspects of museum work, whilst encouraging students to reflect critically on the concept of the museum and its associated practices. It is intended primarily for those who wish to enter the museum profession in the UK or abroad or else pursue PhD studies on museological topics. It provides a balance of practice and theory for students from a wide range of academic backgrounds and cultures. The programme engages with all kinds of museums, from art galleries to science museums, from memorial museums to digital museums, without specialising in any particular type. It is available full-time over one calendar year or part-time over two calendar years. The degree consists of taught courses, a dissertation and a museum placement, as well as practical classes and organised museum visits.
