Museum Studies Graduate Programs
Introduction to Museum Studies Graduate Programs
Graduates of museum studies programs commonly pursue careers as archivists, curators, and technicians to protect,
manage, and organize collections of artwork and historical items. They typically have a graduate degree in museum studies
or in a subject such as history, library science, archival science, archeology, or another closely related subject.
Professionals in the field who majored in something other than museum studies often have a certificate or emphasis in
museum studies to specialize their degrees.
Museum Studies Graduate Curriculum
Museum studies programs typically require students to complete core and elective courses, a written thesis or
dissertation, and an internship for academic credit.
