Public programs facilitate dialogue between academics and professionals, informing scholarship and strengthening practice.
Multiple day conferences, year-long colloquia, individual lectures, “conversations” between individuals, hands-on workshops, and Museums at Noon talks featuring our graduate students all contribute to the remarkable richness of MSP offerings.
Video recordings of some MSP lectures are archived for viewing in our Media Gallery.

MSP Student Engagement Board kick-off meeting
October 8, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
As we navigate the start of this new academic year, we are excited to share an important new initiative here at the Museum Studies Program. We are launching an MSP student engagement board (name TBD!)! Run by students and for students, we imagine the group organizing social activities, sponsoring workshops and visiting speakers, and promoting field trips to our campus and regional museums. Our hope is also that this initiative will create the possibility of forging closer bonds and exchanges across MSP graduate student cohorts.
Other potential roles for the group might include naming a student to serve on the MSP Steering Committee and active participation in the planning and implementing of “The MSP @ 20” – our program’s 20th anniversary which we will be celebrating in 2022. And this is just the beginning! We anticipate that the advisory body will develop a life and energy of its own that will inform and enrich our existing MSP endeavors. Designated funds will be made available to support the work of the student committee and we would also love to see a student-led blog spring to life on our MSP web page.
Please consider how you can help us shape this new effort and make it into a special part of the MSP!
Join us for an initial conversation via Zoom on Friday, Oct 8 at 3 pm.
