More about Master of The Reinwardt Academy 

The Reinwardt Academy international master Applied Museum and Heritage Studies is designed to give you the knowledge and skills needed to conduct socially engaged interventions in the international museums and heritage field. You will study how current societal transitions have an impact on, and can be impacted by, museum and heritage work. On the basis of questions and cases from the field, you will discuss and conceptualise exhibitions, educational programmes, policies and community projects as cultural interventions in an everchanging world. In line with current global developments, the three main themes running throughout the programme are sustainability, inclusivity and digitality.

We offer our programme in the historical city of Amsterdam to a highly diverse group of about twenty students. They come from all over the world and have a range of educational and professional backgrounds. By interacting with your fellow students, you will develop theoretically, practically and ethically grounded perspectives on international museum and heritage work. We expect you to demonstrate an open-minded, inquisitive and practice-based attitude, as we treat our students as colleagues-to-be.

The 60 EC programme consists of four modules and can be completed during one year of full-time study. In Researching Concepts, you will reflect on key concepts such as culture, identity, heritage, authenticity, participation, sustainability, inclusivity and digitality. Through workshops and field visits, you will explore the practical and ethical challenges of museum and heritage work in Engaged Professionalism. In Intervention Design, you will work in small teams on a client requested intervention, concerning presentation, education and/or collections. You will conclude the programme by conducting independent intervention research in a museum or heritage organisation. With the integrated vision on cultural heritage, ethics and societal issues gained from this programme, you should be ready to take up a position of leadership in the museum and heritage field as a project manager, a section head or an (independent) advisor. This could be at a community organisation, a distinguished national institute or anything in between. The Reinwardt Academy is a well-known name in museum and heritage training and our vast global network will open doors to various job opportunities.
