Course summary

Museums are about discovering and investigating societies through the physical objects they have left behind: how people lived, but also how the causes and effects of social, political, cultural and economic events and developments can be traced through collections found in museums.

Course overview

Museums are an integral part of the present, and a resource for the future. By studying how museums function, you will be working in an exciting and expanding, as well as an increasingly complex, subject area.

Why study this course with us?

In studying Museums Practice, you will have access to a wide range of resources, such as museum services and their collections across Shrewsbury and Shropshire. We have strong links to heritage organisations and their resources, including English Heritage and the National Trust. We aim to equip you with the knowledge and skills to operate within the broader heritage industry, such as in museums, but also with heritage and planning agencies, local authorities and international organisations, private enterprises and civic organisations.

Our course blends theory and practice, with opportunity to gain ‘hands-on’ experience and to participate in research projects.
