Master of Arts degree in Museology is offered by University of Florida, this interdisciplinary program that consists of both academic and practical work. The curriculum allows students to do graduate work in a disciplinary emphasis (art history, anthropology, history, education, or the natural sciences) and at the same time complete a concentrated study in professional museum practice.
