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.
