About this course

Art history and curatorship has a strong career orientation. Several ANU graduates have taken up key positions in art galleries, museums and other cultural institutions. Some are in teaching positions relating to their specialisations, while others have entered the commercial world of culture and art. This course lets its students Immerse themselves in specialised and exclusive tutorials at the National Gallery of Australia, the National Portrait Gallery and the Australian War Memorial. They also get practical experience with some of the world’s most exciting cultural institutions during their selected internships. With a strong emphasis on critical analysis, research, problem solving and communicating with audiences in diverse ways, this degree provides valuable training for future managers in the arts, heritage and collections sectors, and more broadly across the public service and private enterprise.
