With three areas of scholarship at its core – cultural research and policy, communication strategies, and creative content – the program readies students for a wide range of communication, planning, and management roles in the museum and related fields, helping institutions connect to the audiences, community members, donors, media representatives and policy-makers they seek to engage.
Students in the Museum Studies program pursue a course of study that balances theory with application. The curriculum is grounded, current and relevant. Courses on information literacy, graphic and content design, marketing and communications planning, visitor experience, governance, and fundraising are complemented by immersive hands-on learning experiences as well as internships and apprenticeships with many of the greater Philadelphia region’s more than 1,200 museums and cultural institutions. Students also benefit from inter-departmental courses shared with other Museum Studies students at UArts.
