Program Overview

Museum Management and Curatorship is an intensive, fast-paced, immersion experience that provides applied training for careers in the museum, gallery or heritage sectors. Approximately 75% of classes are held at the Peterborough Museum & Archives.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

  • Make history come alive, create meaningful stories by documenting and preserving our heritage for today and future generations.
  • Museum Managers and Curators don't just preserve the relics, stories, and memorabilia of the past. They animate and interpret it, bringing history to life for people of all ages and stages. Put your university degree or college diploma to work in the service of a society that needs to know its past -- in order to inform the future.
  • You will take this post-graduate certificate program during three consecutive semesters. The program is designed to meet the needs of students who want to acquire applied skills-based training for careers in the museum/gallery or heritage sectors. The courses have been developed in consultation and co-operation with museums and heritage organizations in order to offer a real, not simulated, work experience. Updated curriculum reflects practical applications of theory, beyond best practices rooted in ethical applications. The program is an optimal blend of independent study, in-class lectures, discussion, group work, applied projects, experience based and priceless hands-on learning.

WHY CHOOSE FLEMING
The Museum Management and Curatorship program at Fleming College is unique in Canada, and is one of the few available to students interested in this field. The post-graduate certificate is highly regarded by heritage, historical, and cultural institutions, galleries, museums, and graduates. The program benefits from strong partnerships and support from museums and galleries.

WORK EXPERIENCE
By the nature of this program, a significant amount of time is spent working in teams in the field, and on practical projects.
The third and final semester of the Museum Management and Curatorship program is a challenging, full-time, four-month internship during the spring and summer. This unpaid, curriculum-based internship will give you hands-on work experience where you will put all your hard work and studies into motion. Students should be prepared to relocate for the internship, to pay full tuition, and be self-supporting. You will negotiate your own internship with faculty assistance. Some students have gone abroad for the internship, for example, to Australia, the United Kingdom, and Ireland. Students are responsible for negotiating and funding requirements for international internships including visas, travel and insurance. Examples of internship locations include:

  • Heritage Preservation Office - Peterborough
  • Peterborough Museum & Archives
  • Provincial Archives Associations
  • Ontario Museum Association
  • The Rooms Newfoundland
  • Nova Scotia Museums
  • Metro Toronto Zoo
  • Bata Shoe Museum
  • Royal Tyrrell Museum
