Museum Studies encompasses the study of museums, museology and the development of the skills and knowledge necessary for museum practice.
The program has been at the forefront of museum training and research in Australia since 1976. It has extensive professional and research links and contributes critically to changes in museology and museums. Professional links also mean that the program places a consistently high percentage of its graduates in museums and museum-related employment. Research students are also involved in monthly reading groups, where students are given the chance to focus the readings on their own areas of interest. The group also provides a forum for more general museological issues. All students are encouraged to participate in wider forums such as national and international conferences, for which research grants may be obtained.
