The Interdisciplinary Certificate Program in Museum Studies is intended to be completed
along with a regular graduate degree program (MA, MS, MFA, or PhD) in a related discipline.
A total of 18 graduate credit hours is required.
Six of the 18 hours must be met by satisfactory completion of two core courses: ANTH/ARTH 7661 Museum Practices and ANTH/ARTH 7662 Museums and Communities.
Six elective hours (two classes) will be selected in consultation with the Admissions and Advisory
Committee and with the approval of the program coordinator (Dr. Luebbers). Unless
a special exemption is requested, students in the Anthropology and Art/Art History
graduate programs must take at least three elective hours outside of their major department.
Six internship hours are also required. These consist of two three-credit-hour internships: ARTH/ANTH
7669 Museum Internship. Each of the two internship sites will be chosen by the student in consultation with
the Admissions and Advisory Committee and with the approval of the program coordinator
(Dr. Luebbers). For those students already working in a museum or other appropriate
community site, three of the internship hours may be replaced by a third elective
NOTE: The student must be officially admitted to the Interdisciplinary Graduate Certificate Program in Museum Studies and have
successfully completed at least one core course, before any internship will be approved.
The deadline for late applications to the Museum Studies Certificate Program for Fall semester 2014 is Monday, August 11, 2014.
