Museum Studies

The vast majority of people only spend a few hours in a museum. A select few find a new life there. Gain greater exposure and access to collections. Translate your understanding and knowledge to everyone who walks through the door.

About the Program

The Museum Studies Program at the University of Florida College of the Arts was established in 1999. This two and one-half year graduate degree program offers sound academic grounding, museum theory, and practical experience. Students select and pursue a disciplinary emphasis of their choice (for example Anthropology, Art Education, Art History, Education, English, History, Historic Preservation, or Tourism, Recreation, and Sports Management) while participating in comprehensive museum studies seminars, practica, and internships.

The Master of Arts degree program in Museum Studies is both rigorous and challenging.

Upon completion of the program, graduates will have attained the skills and knowledge necessary to pursue careers in a variety of institutions, including art museums, natural history museums, history museums, anthropology museums, children's museums, historic sites, and various other interpretive sites and institutions.
