Museums are some of the most internationally recognised tourist attractions in the world.
ECU is giving you the chance to get really understand how museums work with the unique Museum Studies Course, the only one of its kind in WA.
Museum Studies is a nationally recognised course, with workshops running throughout 2012 for those interested in learning about what makes museums tick.
“For 2012 we have 14 exciting weekend workshops to offer, all run by highly experienced industry experts,” Course Coordinator Dr Lydia Edwards said.
The courses will be of interest anyone who loves visiting museums and galleries, wants to work in them in the future or already volunteers and are looking to hone their skills.
Course coordinators will provide proof of attendance of applicants’ chosen workshops, which can then be presented to future employers as evidence of new skills gained.
“Museums and galleries across Australia will be aware of our long and distinguished history, originating with ECU's very special Museum of Childhood,” Dr Edwards said.
“Completing this course will stand you in good stead for any kind of involvement with the museums world.”
Workshops cost $230 per person, with options also available to apply for a travel bursary and scholarship.
Applications close on Friday, 17 February 2012. For more information or to register your interest email firstname.lastname@example.org. Also look out for brochures across campus and in many of Perth’s museums, galleries and local libraries.
