Museum Studies Program

The Program in Museum Studies offers an MA in Museum Studies, an Advanced Certificate in Museum Studies, and a Concentration in Museum Studies to those enrolled for a Master's degree in one of the following NYU departments: Africana Studies, Hebrew & Judaic Studies, Latin American & Caribbean Studies, and Near Eastern Studies.

The Program in Museum Studies offers an innovative course of study in the contemporary theory and practice of museum work that emphasizes both the interdisciplinary study of museums and courses of practical training. In addition to obtaining a broad foundation in the history and theory of museums, the creation and maintenance of exhibitions and collections, and museum management, our students pursue personal programs of study supporting individual academic and career objectives. Graduates from the program are working as directors, curators, educators, registrars, collection managers, and development, media and public relations specialists in a variety of settings (museums of fine art, history, anthropology, technology, and natural history; in arboretums, national parks, and science centers; with private and corporate collections; and in government agencies, historical societies, and art galleries).
