Qualifications

Overview

If you're interested in galleries, libraries, archives, and museums, then this specialisation is for you. You'll explore culture through objects, ranging from contemporary art, classics, indigenous film, oral traditions, books, photographs, material culture, archaeological remains, and the built environment.

You'll be able to critically look at our cultural heritage in Aotearoa, including the impact of colonisation and power structures across our history, and apply these skills to international contexts.
