Welcome to Museum Studies at SF State

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.


Fall 2015 Admissions Update

Museum Studies Gallery Winter Update

12/23/2014--We are currently reorganizing our facility, and our gallery will move to an exciting new location in the Fine Arts Building. All field trips and public programs are on hiatus until next fall when we launch an exhibition featuring our Egyptian collections and a sample of new collections in our new space. In the meantime, visit some of our objects at the amazing SFO Museum at the San Francisco International Airport, in the Egyptian Revival exhibition, opening in the International Terminal in January 2015!
