Market Demand

Demand for curators is expected to grow due to an anticipated rise in museum attendance and increased public interest in related fields. In schools, history is a compulsory subject for Standard 4 students with an emphasis on the socio-cultural aspects of the nation’s history hence more professionals in this field are needed to help revive the love for history.  Job prospects should be best for those with experience and training.
