The way our cultural institutions collect and exhibit art, artefacts, technologies and other material culture helps to shape the way society sees itself. Learning how to work with such collections underpins a wide variety of careers in the global cultural and heritage sectors.

Our Master of Curatorial and Museum Studies is the only specialist degree in South Australia designed to provide you with this unique capability.

Delivered in cooperation with the South Australian Museum and many other cultural organisations, the degree will enable you to:

  • build skills in collection and exhibition development, and museum and gallery management
  • explore issues of cultural ownership and conservation, and Australian Indigenous and global heritage
  • enjoy extraordinary access to Adelaide’s world-class cultural institutions, through regular site visits, guest lectures and internships
  • utilise emerging technologies, including virtual reality, to develop next-generation skills in digital literacy and creative innovation
  • explore related subjects, such as social media and education.
You’ll also have the remarkable opportunity to closely observe a significant new cultural institution being established in Adelaide—the Aboriginal Art and Cultures Centre, set to open in 2025—and explore the translation of historic collections into this new context.
