About

Museum Studies at the University of the Arts offers three distinctive graduate programs that put contemporary museum theory and practice into the hands of our students: Museum Studies (MA), Museum Education (MA), Museum Exhibition Planning & Design (MFA).

Overview

The foundation of the program has four components: an education core addressing methods of object interpretation and museum teaching; a focus on museum history, current theories and practices; a professional core including two internships; and a master’s thesis or capstone project. Students also benefit from departmental courses many of which involve team projects with other Museum Studies students, as well as the opportunity to take electives in other UArts departments.
