Sarah currently teaches on the MA Museum Cultures programme and is a module leader for the core course 'Approaches, Issues, Skills'. She leads an intensive module in the spring term called 'Curating', and an MA option called 'Slavery and its Cultural Legacies'. 

Our MA Museum Cultures combines study of the history and cultural significance of museums with opportunities for professional museum experience. If you are contemplating a career in the museum and gallery sector, this course provides you with the perfect opportunity to study this expanding and dynamic field in close proximity to world-distinguished museums and galleries.
