Museum Studies

Museums are not static institutions. There is a constant need to rethink and redefine  what a museum is or can be. Situated at the heart of one of the world's great museum capitals, UCL provides a uniquely stimulating environment for museological research and training at MA, PhD and post-doctoral levels.

Museum Studies is an interdisciplinary field of study, and whilst research and teaching in this area is mainly based at UCL's Institute of Archaeology, the focus of work ranges widely across contemporary museological issues and contexts.

Please explore the following links for further information:

Prospective students are welcome to access the Museum Studies MA Moodle Site as guests - the site contains course handbooks, teaching schedules, details of workshops and museum visits, etc.

"A fantastic course - it will definitely take me one step closer to my dream job!" - Natalie Boxshall
