The museum studies program at Tufts is offered as an independent certificate as well as a part of three graduate degree options. All students take Museums Today: Mission and Function, complete an internship, and choose three additional electives. Tufts offers these museum studies graduate degree options:
- Master of Arts in Art History and Museum Studies through the Department of Art and Art History
- Master of Arts in History and Museum Studies through the Department of History
- Master of Arts degree in Museum Education through the Department of Education
Each Master of Arts program has its own requirements, but each includes both required and elective museum studies courses. All are designed as two-year, full time programs, but some departments may offer other options. For more information on the graduate program requirements and deadlines, visit the Graduate Studies website.
