Welcome to the Museum Studies Program!
We are an interdisciplinary program focused on training students across a wide range of museum practices including collections care and management, curatorial practices, museum education, audience research, and museum interpretive practices. We emphasize hands-on learning combined with community-engaged projects that aim to create more meaningful and relevant museum experiences for communities. Students gain deep access to area museums and build relationships with museum staff and collections. Throughout the program students have opportunities to work on socially engaged projects, community-based research, and applied research in museum settings. Our graduates are employed across the country in museums big and small. We'd love to have you join us.
