Certificate in Museum Studies
As part of its mandate to promote professionalism and skills development within the museum community, the Museum Association of Newfoundland and Labrador provides a Certificate in Museum Studies. This program provides museum workers with a general introduction into current theories, standards, and best practices for museums. The content of the certificate program is based on topics covered in MANL’s Best Practices publication.
The certificate program is composed of four core courses and four elective courses. Courses will normally be offered in a two day workshop format throughout the province. No less than two core courses will be offered each year and all four of the core courses will be offered within any two year period.
In addition to the core courses, no less than two courses designated as applicable elective courses will be offered each year. Workshops that can be credited as an elective course will be identified as such on the workshop registration form. Certificate program participants will have up to 4 years to complete their program.
All participants in the certificate program must first register with the MANL office. To register, please complete the Certificate in Museum Studies Registration Form and send it to:
