Essex’s BA Curating can provide students with the intellectual and practical skills they need to realise their career ambitions, combining classroom-based learning with hands-on experience in museums and galleries. This course has an overview of major developments in art history – something essential for any budding curator. Students will also learn about the history and theory of exhibition design, particularly on how curatorial choices shape their experiences while viewing artworks and the other objects on display in museums and galleries. This course includes frequent staff-led visits to London museums and galleries which will also expose students to the latest developments in curating, and students will be strongly encouraged to conduct a placement in order to gain exposure to the inner workings of a museum, auction house or gallery.
