UCL Qatar has announced that its MA in Museums and Gallery Practice has become one of the first two programmes internationally to receive the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals accreditation.
The master’s degree, one of the two unique programmes offered at UCL Qatar, was recognised for its ability to prepare students as they embark on their professional practices with solid foundations in the cultural heritage field, according to a press statement.
The designation acknowledges that the programme prepares students to meet the demands of the museums and gallery profession internationally, the statement notes.
Dr Alexandra Bounia, senior lecturer and programme co-ordinator, said: “The MA in Museum and Gallery Practice has been carefully designed to enable students to address the emerging needs of the cultural heritage sector in different parts of the world. UCL Qatar graduates have proven themselves to be catalysts in developing the heritage management profession in the country, already making an impact across some of the country’s most iconic cultural institutions.”
UCL Qatar was particularly commended for the university’s practice of highlighting differing viewpoints and ways of looking at objects, services and problems, as well as the use of local examples of research, objects and service providers that were placed within an international context.
“The international accreditation helps make our graduates highly competitive internationally and comes as a result of the tremendous work our staff and faculty have done for the development of the programme to the benefit of the cultural heritage sector in Qatar,” added Sam Evans, director of UCL Qatar.
