About the Program
Designed for those hoping to work in art collection-related fields, the Art History and Museum Studies program of Tufts University, offered by the Department of the History of Art and Architecture, provides advanced qualifications in art history and a broad introduction to museum work. As a student in the program, you'll take courses in art history and museum studies simultaneously. With the consultation of a faculty advisor, you'll also complete independent research and either a thesis or two qualifying papers. Our small program size ensures that you'll receive dedicated attention from our expert faculty and get to know your cohort.
The metropolitan Boston area, and Tufts in particular, is also an ideal location to explore art history and museum studies. Instructors take advantage of Tufts' affiliation with Boston's renowned Museum of Fine Arts, as well as other area museums to bring learning outside of classrooms.
After completing the degree, you will be well prepared for careers in museums, art galleries, art publishing, museum education, teaching, art libraries, visual resource collection, or auction houses.
