Apply to join MSP!

The Museum Studies Program invites students enrolled in any graduate program at the University of Michigan to apply for admission starting in Fall 2020.  This multidisciplinary graduate certificate program draws on ideas from the arts, humanities, natural and social sciences, and technology and provides countless opportunities to apply theories in a vast array of museums and cultural institutions on campus, in the region, nationally and around the world.

The MSP curriculum examines the role of museums in society as sites of memory, learning, research, cultural production, public scholarship, civic engagement, and entertainment. The 12-credit certificate program consists of the Museum Studies Seminar (Fall and Winter terms, 6 credits), approved electives (6 credits), and a funded internship.  It prepares students for academic and professional careers in museums, heritage sites, arboretums, botanical gardens, zoos and other living collections, and universities.

Join us at our reception to learn more about the program:  Monday, January 27 from 5:00 – 7:00 pm, UM Museum of Art Multi-Purpose Room

Application Deadline: February 28, 2020
