Arts / ANU to offer joint arts program with US uni

THE ANU and Indiana University, in the US, will offer a new dual-degree Masters program in Arts Administration and Museum and Heritage Studies from 2017 under a new deal to promote stronger links between the universities.

ANU vice-chancellor Prof Brian Schmidt and IU president Prof Michael McRobbie signed off on the new dual Masters program in Bloomington during a high-level delegation visit from ANU to Indiana.

The new joint program has been designed to provide students at the ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences and students at the IU School of Public and Environmental Administration with opportunity to study within two distinct but related areas of cultural administration.

 “Australian students will have the opportunity to augment their qualifications in museums and collections with a degree in arts administration, while students from Indiana will be able to add museum and heritage studies to their arts administration qualifications,” Prof Schmidt said.

The dual program will give students the opportunity to do internships in both the US and Australia, with qualifications recognised by both universities. Students will spend a year at each university.

Details of the new dual Masters program are available on ANU CASS website.
