In this course students will gain an advanced understanding and acquire a professional profile within the Gallery/Museum sector. This course will further emphasise (from Gallery Studies 3) the importance of experience and expertise in relation to promoting the curator as entrepreneur. Through this course students will gain professional experience and knowledge within the arts industry which will aid them in developing self-directed future projects. This is the final of 4 gallery studies courses offered and this course enables students to acquire advanced skills and knowledge that they will be able to use professionally in the arts industry.

In Gallery Studies 4 students will explore the role of a self-directed or independent curator; this will include the role of ethics in regards professional conduct as well as the conceptual, cultural and community aspects of these professional outcomes. Students will be expected to show a high degree of self-motivation in the research and practice undertaken.
This is the fourth of four courses, in which students will fully develop and realise a complex project and resolve the project in a professional manner.
