Course summary

Hands-on curatorial experience and individual, practice-based projects form the foundation of our MA Curation Masters degree.

Exploring the idea of “exhibition” in its broadest sense across the field of contemporary art, you’ll engage with gallery-based exhibitions and projects in non-traditional venues, site-specific interventions and public art projects.

Relevant, current and innovative

Reflecting the latest thinking across curatorial studies, this practical and relevant postgraduate course acknowledges the emergence of the artist-curator, as well as more traditional routes to curatorial practice.

You’ll consider the possibilities offered by a range of platforms, from traditional museum collections, museology and archives, to virtual and interactive methods.

You’ll be aided in developing self-initiated curatorial projects, which will see you innovating and exploring ways to cultivate new audiences.

Professional skills and industry links

With strong links to the Arts Council Collection, Hayward Touring, Tate, Norwich Castle Museum & Gallery – as well as other local, regional and national galleries and museums – NUA is the ideal environment in which to study curatorial practice.

The University’s own gallery, East GalleryNUA, is an important touring venue for national and international exhibitions and has helped cement NUA’s reputation for high quality curatorial practice. East GalleryNUA hosted the British Art Show 8 in 2016 and the prestigious EASTinternational between 1991 and 2009.

A training programme delivered by the gallery as part of our MA Curation programme provides a unique opportunity to develop your professional practice. A mentoring scheme with curators – exclusive for postgraduate students studying this degree – offers invaluable opportunities to engage with industry professionals.
