This programme has been designed in close partnership with one of the world’s great museum organisations. National Museums Liverpool (NML) attracts 3.3 million visitors a year. Its collections are among the most varied in Europe and contain everything from Impressionist paintings and rare beetles to a lifejacket from Titanic.
Through a series of guest seminars, practical training workshops and study visits embedded throughout the programme, the MA Museum and Heritage Studies offers students unparalleled access to NML’s professional expertise, world-class collections and outstanding venues. No other museum studies programme currently offers such close collaboration with a national museum service.
Inspired by Liverpool Hope University and NML’s shared commitment to social justice, our unique programme emphasises the new approaches being taken by museums to address social inequalities, from anti-racism workshops with local schools to global campaigns for human rights. Students explore the variety of methods and techniques employed by today’s museum professionals to develop socially-relevant collections, to produce inspiring and challenging exhibitions, and to engage communities on a local, national and international level.
The application of theoretical and ethical perspectives to real-world case studies enables students to develop a critical understanding of social justice in a museological context, preparing our graduates for a variety of professional roles in the contemporary museum or for further study at doctoral level.
