Your qualification can be a bridge between previous academic study and professional work in a museum, gallery or other cultural or heritage organisation. You’ll advance your knowledge of and abilities in heritage management and bicultural practices in the heritage sector, and build experience in problem solving and working in interdisciplinary teams.
Massey’s Master of Arts is 180 credits. This means you can complete an MA in three semesters of full-time study. If you study part-time, an MA will normally take three years to complete.
