About Cultural Heritage and Museum Studies (Part time), MA - at University of East Anglia (UEA)

Study

This MA combines theory and practice of managing cultural heritage (including archaeological sites, historic landscapes, and museums). It draws on rich heritage and museum resources of the region, including the Norfolk Museums, Archaeology Service and the National Trust.

Structure

The course offers intensive preparation for a career in heritage or museums. Students undertake a 2-3 week work placement with a heritage organisation, for which they produce a detailed management plan, gaining valuable professional experience. The course also requires students to prepare an independently researched dissertation on a topic of their choice. Field trips are also included as part of study.

Teaching

Students get more lectures, seminars, tutorials and general contact time with academic staff than students at many other leading History of Art departments in the UK. Art History and World Art Studies is based in Norman Foster's world-famous Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, an icon of modern design, which contains an astounding art collection with major internationally-renowned works by artists such as Francis Bacon, Edgar Degas, Jacob Epstein, Henry Moore and Pablo Picasso.

Employability

UEA graduates of Art History and World Art Studies go on to high profile posts in such prestigious institutions as the British Museum, V&A, Tate and Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, as well as leading History of Art departments, publishers and the commercial art world.

Entry requirements

Open to applicants with a good Honours degree (UK BA (Hons) 2:1 or equivalent) in humanities or social science subjects, or relevant practical experience. Interviews are required for students applying to this degree.
