The University of Kansas’ Museum Studies Program (https://museumstudies.ku.edu) offers a flexible master’s degree and graduate certificate, with a focus on interdisciplinarity and student advising. Our program builds students’ foundations in the field and hands-on professional skills, and deepens their knowledge in a chosen academic discipline. Each student focuses their coursework on the subjects and skillsets that interest them professionally. Students work with both KU faculty and active museum professionals in the Kansas City area, and we have many renowned on-campus museums, including the Spencer Museum of Art and Biodiversity Institute/Natural History Museum, where students can intern or access collections. Students can fulfill their internship requirement locally or at any museum in the world.
Applications are due February 1 for fall admission. Get to know the program during our Q&A session on Wednesday, December 7, at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT.
