Museum studies is an interdisciplinary field, therefore, the Master of Arts in Museum Studies Program accepts students with diverse academic backgrounds. The program is designed to accommodate working professionals by offering night classes on our newly renovated campus and the possibility of finishing the program entirely at a distance. We invite you to navigate our website and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us.

Students matriculating in the Master of Arts in Museum Studies Program will undertake a rigorous course of learning in Museology, the branch of knowledge dedicated to the study of the theories, procedures and managerial concepts of museums: institutions for the acquisition, preservation, study and exhibition of works of artistic, historical or scientific value.

Practical application of course work is achieved through internships with local, regional and national museums, which serve as extended classrooms.  Students will examine options for employment, which will prepare graduates of the program to pursue careers in a variety of local, regional and national museums, campus museums, private galleries and historical associations.
