The Master of Arts (MA) in Museum Education is designed for those interested in pursuing careers in art, history, science, and children's museums.
Museum educators design and conduct programs for toddlers, families, policemen, doctors-in-training, parolees, those with dementia and more, and they facilitate lifelong learning by teaching visitors make their own connections and meanings.
Museum educators serve on exhibition development teams, work with community groups, create in-museum and Internet learning resources, conduct in-person and distance learning programs, and direct departments and museums.
