Museum Studies Certificate Program
The Museum Studies Certificate Program (MSCP) is designed to enhance existing graduate degree programs for those students seeking scholarly expertise and practical experience in the field of museum studies. The Certificate Program is also a stand-alone program, open to those who have completed an undergraduate degree but are not enrolled in a graduate degree program. The theoretical and scholarly orientation of the curriculum for the MSCP is balanced with archival and curatorial practice through internships at the Center of Creative Photography, the University of Arizona Museum of Art, the Arizona State Museum, and other relevant cultural institutions in the region.
