Museum Communication and Audience Engagement 

This is a theoretically-grounded and evidenced-based module, which aims to examine the museum - audience relationships.

Starting from an audience focused perspective, the module approaches communication as a key concept and process in examining contemporary museums’ focus on interpretation, relevance and meaning-making. It covers a wide range of subjects including how museums conceptualise their audiences; the communication, education, social and civic functions of museums; interpretation and meaning-making; public engagement; and audience research and evaluation
