BA Curatorial Studies
Our new BA Curatorial Studies degree provides you with the expert knowledge and practical skills for pursuing
careers in curating, gallery management and museums and combines class-based learning with hands-on experience.
Study abroad is a great opportunity for seeing art works in situ and
enhancing your study experience.
All our courses are offered as four-year
options, which allow you to
spend a year abroad studying at a partner
university elsewhere in the world, be it in Europe, North America, the
Asia-Pacific Region, Latin America, or the Middle East. Our partner universities
include many world-renowned institutions, such as the Ecole du Louvre (France),
University of Freiburg (Germany), and University of Bologna (Italy). The year
abroad normally takes place in your third year.
With our three-year BA courses, you have the option to spend a term studying
abroad, usually during the autumn term of your third year. You can also opt to
transfer to a four-year course, including year abroad, normally after the Easter
vacation in your first year.
Contact Essex Abroad for further
information about studying abroad or speak to our Study Abroad Officer,
Dr Matt Lodder.
