What will I learn?

Step up in the world of culture

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 Graduate Diploma in Curatorial and Museum Studies is part of the only specialist degree suite in South Australia designed to provide you with this unique capability.

What will you do?

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 access to Adelaide’s world-class cultural institutions, through site visits and guest lectures

· utilise emerging technologies, including virtual reality, to develop next-generation skills in digital literacy and creative innovation.

You’ll also have the remarkable opportunity to 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.

Where could it take you?

You might play a senior role with a living arts festival. You could help plan engaging exhibitions in a science centre, or zoo. Perhaps you’ll go on to complete our Master of Curatorial and Museum Studies.
