Courtauld Institute of Art

Course Introduction

This course offers an ideal entry point for a career in museums and galleries. The programme puts the physical object at the heart of curatorial training whilst placing specialist knowledge firmly within the context of the modern museum. Students are given a unique mix of seminars, hands-on experience and internship placements, all focusing on the expanding remit of the art curator in the twenty-first century. This MA provides a small group of students with unrivaled access to exceptional resources, drawing on the Courtauld?s own academic faculty, conservation departments and the Gallery, as well as making the most of our close links with other London museums. Among the highlights of the curriculum are a field trip to Europe and an exhibition project that takes place in The Courtauld Gallery.
