Program OverviewPrinter Friendly
Centennial College’s Museum and Cultural Management program will offer an applied, learner-centred curriculum to help you develop the skill set to manage programs and resources that preserve and publicly present our civilization's cultural and natural heritage.
Courses in this graduate certificate program will cover industry-based subjects and museum administration topics while exploring, in-depth, contemporary issues and cases in Canada and abroad. Core theory will be applied to current workplace realities while assignments, lessons and student placements will be linked to Canada and Ontario's vast network of museums.
The Museum and Cultural Management program has fostered numerous partnerships with local, provincial and national institutions. As a result, professionals from the field act as advisors, guest lecturers and field placement supervisors. Through this network, we will help you find the ideal field placement for your career development.
Annually, not-for-profit museums, art galleries, science centres, aquaria, archives, sports halls-of-fame, artist-run centres, zoos and heritage sites attract more than 59 million visitors. A further 60 million people visit Canada’s historic sites and natural parks each year. Upon graduation, you'll be prepared to work in this industry at one of Canada's 2,500 museums and related institutions, or abroad.
- You'll learn from professionals who have current knowledge of the industry.
- Training will be complemented by a 14-week full-time field placement.
- The Story Arts Centre, located close to downtown Toronto, will provide opportunities to collaborate with students in photography, broadcasting, music, art and theatre programs.
- The Museum and Cultural Management program's practical, hands-on and entrepreneurial approach will prepare you for a sustainable heritage sector-related career directly upon graduation.
