The AGMS MA is both a crucial entry-level qualification for anyone seeking to pursue a career in museums or galleries, and is also a valuable resource for continuing professional development for mid-career professionals. In addition, the programme provides a thorough training in the skills needed to pursue 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. The AGMS programme has been officially recognised by the Museums Association.
