Museum Studies is not something you may grow up wanting to study, however, it is a fantastic way to learn about art, aesthetics, archaeological objects, business, and history all in one subject. Even better, to be able to study it in a country that is rich with artefacts and culture. Each of our partners that offer Museum Studies, brings something different to their respective programs. It is important to know what you would like to focus on (art museums, business aspects of running a museum, classics, etc.) in order to make the right decision for yourself.

It also opens the door to many different master’s programs in the humanities subjects.... [-]
