Are you interested in curating? Do you know about the one-year graduate  diploma in Curatorial Studies now being offered at Carleton? Applications are currently being accepted for Fall 2020 enrolment (Deadline: March 15).

Come learn more! No RSVP required, and light refreshments will be served!

Galleries, Museums, Memorials, and Interpretation Centres are how we as a society define ourselves, our histories, our identities, our values, and the spaces we occupy in the public sphere. Curators play a major role in shaping that discourse, through collections, exhibitions, performances, and sites of memory that provide space for public debate, engagement, and reflection.

As featured in Maclean’s 2018 College and University Program Guide, Carleton’s Graduate Diploma in Curatorial Studies offers students both the disciplinary expertise and applied skills sought by cultural institutions. Our interdisciplinary program spans the arts, social sciences, and sciences, exposing students to a wide range of museological and curatorial issues. Combining hands-on experience in a practicum, with institutional training in a major museum, and critical theoretical engagement in the classroom, this program gives students a well-rounded education that enables them to jump-start their careers.
