Making the decision to study at the Reinwardt Academy means opting for intensive contact with cultural heritage-a heritage that is visible not only in objects, but in stories and recollections too. Everyone who studies, or works at our Academy is curious about heritage and wishes to develop this curiosity to a professional level. Studying for the International Master of Museology means that a student wants to develop skills which will enable him or her to actively take part in the public discussion about heritage and to look at heritage from a wide range of perspectives.
The programme's combination of high levels of academic work and practical skills is, for graduates, a unique way to start, or continue their work in the international field ofmuseums and cultural heritage. The Master's Degree Programme is based on a broad definition of museums. Without wishing to exclude traditional museums, the programme tries to focus on new approaches. The use of the term museology, rather than museum studies, is not only a reference to an academic foundation but is also intended to stress the fact that the focus is not on institutional frameworks only: the programme offers students the opportunity to reflect on- and to experiment with -new visions of heritage and its role in society.
The programme is divided into three parts: the educational programme, an internship, and thesis research. For full-time students, the Master programme takes eighteen months to complete. It has a workload of 2,500 hours (90 EC ). The educational programme consists of thematical modules with lectures, workshops and excursions.
