This degree program is typically delivered over 1 year at full time, but is often taken at part time over 2 years.
The program is intended to demystify curatorial practice, giving you a broad understanding of the subject as well as allowing you to specialise in some particular aspects. This specialisation could form the foundation of your career.
The program will also give you the critical thinking skills you’ll need to challenge existing practice when necessary, to justify or refute the need for changes in procedure, and to give you the intellectual tools you’ll need to take up doctoral level studies.
By the time you graduate, you should:
- Have gained a systematic understanding and critical awareness of current problems in the field as well as an appreciation of issues at the forefront of academic study or professional practice of curation.
- Be able to deal with complex curation issues with creativity and attention to detail, and make reliable judgements regarding them.
