The MLitt in Museum and Gallery Studies prepares students for employment in museums, principally as curators, with broad training in all types of museums, galleries and other heritage facilities.

Course information

The MLitt in Museum and Gallery Studies is a taught postgraduate programme run by the School of Art History. The MLitt is aimed at students wanting to start a career in museum or gallery work, or for those looking for a mid-career change. The part-time course is designed for museum and gallery employees or volunteers who wish to study while continuing with their work.


  • The degree provides broad training, covering all types of museums, galleries and heritage facilities, and includes the principles of conservation, museum education, exhibition planning and design, and management.
  • Teaching normally takes place in the University, and structured visits to museums, art galleries, historic houses, ships and other heritage sites inform the programme learning experience.
  • Students undertake practical project work with a wide variety of host organisations, from Aberdeen to Edinburgh. This includes the University's Museums collections which hold over 100,000 artefacts and specimens in a wide range of subject areas, from art to zoology.
  • As a core part of the course, and working in teams of six to nine, students have the opportunity to curate professional exhibitions in local venues (University museums and Fife Cultural Trust’s St Andrews Museum). This enables you to develop highly relevant practical and vocational skills and will give you the necessary edge over competitors once you start applying for jobs.


Recent Museum and Gallery Studies graduates have gone on to work for a range of institutions, including:

  • Chicago Institute of Art
  • Victoria and Albert Museum
  • National Trust for Scotland
  • Scottish Fisheries Museum.

Two year-long paid traineeships within University Collections are open exclusively to Museum and Gallery Studies graduates, as is the paid four-to-five month David Nicholls Curatorial Internship at the South Georgia Museum in Antarctica.

The Careers Centre offers one-to-one advice to all students on a taught postgraduate course and offers a programme of events to assist students to build their employability skills.
