About this Program

The museum studies certificate unites history, theory, and practical learning in a curriculum that prepares participants for professional or volunteer careers in administration, collections, and specialty disciplines within museums, archives, tribal collections, zoos, aquariums, parks, and botanical gardens.

This program provides, in both a museum and classroom environment, the basic scholarship and functional training to equip you with the skills necessary to assume professional entry-level museum positions.
