WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • The programme uses historical, theoretical and practice-based models, with the primary aim of better equipping the art & cultural heritage professional with the skills necessary to work within a highly complex international field.
  • Mobility within Europe and beyond is built into the curriculum with opportunities to experience work placements in a range of art and cultural institutions, both public and private.
  • Guest lectures are provided by leading academics and professionals from the art market, museums and other heritage organisations.
