About the program
It is in the nature of research that it is exploratory and breaks new ground, and we can help you judge what areas you might most profitably explore.
All Museology staff supervise research students and welcome enquiries from prospective students in their respective research areas.
Research and teaching in the Centre for Museology are supported by rich resources within the University, in the collections of the University of Manchester Library with its unique Special Collections housed in the refurbished Deansgate building, the Manchester Museum and the Whitworth Art Gallery , as well as in other distinguished Manchester archives and collections.
The University of Manchester research students also work on collections and institutions, past and present, beyond Manchester - in the UK and overseas.
