Course summary

Museums have been of enormous importance in shaping empires, nations and cities, and their collections are connected to wider histories of conflict and social change. To study museums is to study the development and fierce contestation of our collective cultural imagination and memory.

Museum studies is a dynamic and expanding field. If you want an insight into contemporary debates about museums and their cultural significance, then our Postgraduate Certificate in Museum Cultures is the course for you.

The Postgraduate Certificate is ideal if you are interested in studying museum cultures at postgraduate level for personal or professional reasons, but you don't yet want to commit to a full MA.

CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITY

Graduates can pursue careers in museums/galleries/auction houses, the creative arts, media and education. Possible professions include higher education lecturer, museum/gallery curator, or arts administrator. This degree may also be useful in becoming a researcher or advertising account executive.

Read blogs by Danny Birchall, the Wellcome Collection's Digital Manager, who recently completed this course, and Birkbeck student, author and mortician Carla Valentine, who describes how she came to her unusual career and the impact on her work of the MA Museum Cultures.

We offer a comprehensive Careers Service to help you advance your career, while our in-house, professional recruitment consultancy, Birkbeck Talent, works with London’s top employers to help you gain work experience that fits in with your evening studies.
