Course overview



Museums and galleries of art make an important contribution to income generation in the UK. To achieve this successful outcome it is necessary for them to understand the role that culture plays in our society.

This course will focus on:

  • the growing importance of cultural organisations
  • how taste is shaped not only by museums and galleries but also by designers of fashion and lifestyle products
  • how commercial organisations are keen to engage in large-scale cultural projects as a way of attracting a new, younger audience and establishing themselves as key players in a modern society

This museums and galleries course can be taken as stand-alone short course to enhance your knowledge and employability, and on successful completion you will receive 30 Masters level credits. Alternatively you can take both courses and use the credits to gain a Postgraduate Certificate in Museums & Galleries Entrepreneurship.
