This course offers an important entry-level qualification for anyone seeking to pursue a career in museums or galleries.
It is also a valuable resource for continuing professional development for mid-career professionals.
In addition, the MA provides a thorough training in the skills needed to do further postgraduate research.
These skills in research design and planning are transferable to jobs in the museum sector, as well as being a vital first step to PhD research.
Job destinations vary according to the interests, ambitions and skills of each individual, but most of our students are successful in obtaining professional posts in collections, exhibitions, education, interpretation, or some aspect of museum/arts management soon after completing the MA.
You will benefit from lots of CV building opportunities on the course, and your supervisor provides you with personal and career development support.
You'll also have access to the award-winning Careers Service of the University, which provides support and advice in career development.
The University has its own dedicated Careers Service that you would have full access to as a student and for two years after you graduate. At Manchester you will have access to a number of opportunities to help boost your employability .
