Our Master of Arts Program in Museum Studies builds upon students' previous academic studies in museum-related disciplines by emphasizing practical experience, professionalism, and important developments in the field of Museum Studies. Museum Studies students include mid-career museum professionals, people from other professional career fields, and recent B.A. graduates. The Program has over 400 (and counting) alumni since its establishment in 1987, many of whom have found employment at all career levels throughout the U.S., from the Getty to the Smithsonian.
Museum Studies is now using an online submission system for supplemental application materials to the program. Download the 2015 Application Guide for details and application procedures. Please contact us if you are local and cannot attend our last admissions meeting date in January '15 for Fall '15 Admissions.

We are currently reorganizing our facility for an exciting new location. All field trips and public programs are on hiatus until mid-March 2015 when we launch an experimental exhibition featuring our mummy and a sample of new collections in our new space. Visit here again for updates!
