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 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.
- 12 credit hours of coursework (6 of the 12 credit hours may overlap with the degree program in which the student is currently enrolled and count as credit hours for both.)
- 6 credit hours of internship with a local art institution. The internship must include a significant scholarly component that links the practical work with the academic requirements for the certificate.
The Museum Studies Fellowship
A fellowship in the form of financial support is awarded on a competitive basis.
