Admissions Information / Certificate (Graduate)

The Museum Studies graduate certificate is available to any student currently pursuing a graduate degree at UF.

Applications are reviewed formally twice a year: November 1 for a Spring semester start, and March 1 for a Fall semester start. However, interested students may reach out at any time during the fall and spring semesters to discuss the curriculum.

Steps for Current UF Students:

Step 1: Submit your admissions packet for review by emailing your materials to Your packet should include your: 

  • Statement of purpose

  • Letter of support from your graduate committee chair; where this is not possible, a letter from the graduate advisor of your discipline is acceptable

  • Unofficial transcript

  • Current resume

Step 2: Complete the UF Formal Certificate Application

  • Currently enrolled UF students, apply here. You do not pay any fee and you will use your GatorLink username and password to apply.

  • Contact if you are an SA+AH grad student (or your current department) after you apply. The application system 'refers' the online certificate application to the College of the Arts so we receive it to post a decision. Your Graduate Coordinator may not know how to complete this step, but someone who handles admissions for the department will be authorized to do so.

    • Please ask that they email so we know it is ready for the online decision.

  • Upon the Museum Studies Director’s decision, notification will be posted in the same online certificate application.

  • Email if you have any questions.
