Master of Arts: Art History and Museum Studies
The master's program in Art History and Museum Studies is designed to give students advance qualification in art history and a broad introduction to museum work and theory. The program is offered for those hoping to work in art collection-related fields. It provides students with skills and insights to integrate the theoretical study of art history with practical concerns of displaying, managing, and interpreting art objects in a variety of museum settings. Our graduates emerge with a powerful credential to secure museum employment.
Students take courses in art history and museum studies simultaneously. Graduates of this program typically pursue careers in museums, art galleries, art publishing, museum education, teaching, art libraries, visual resource collections, or auction houses. If you are interested in museum studies courses only please see the Museum Studies Certificate Program.
