Museum Studies Graduate Certificate Program
Requirements

After the student has been accepted into the Interdisciplinary Graduate Certificate Program in Museum Studies and admitted to graduate study at the University of Memphis, the following requirements must be met for satisfactory completion of the Museum Certificate.

Requirements -

1. Students must remain in good academic standing, maintaining a minimum GPA of 3.0 during the entire course of their studies.

2. Each student is required to meet with the Museum Studies program coordinator (Dr. Leslie Luebbers) before the beginning of each semester to be cleared to register for their Museum Studies courses.

If a student fails to meet with the Museum Studies advisor for two (2) consecutive semesters (not counting summer session), the student will be automatically dropped from the Museum Studies Certificate Program.  The student will need to apply to the Museum Studies advisory panel to be reinstated in the program and receive the Certificate.  Contact Dr. Luebbers (lluebbrs@memphis.edu) to be readmitted.

3. During the first semester in the Museum Studies program, the student must file a Change of Status form with the University of Memphis. This form officially adds the Graduate Certificate Program in Museum Studies to the student's degree objectives.

Note: If the student is also enrolled in a major degree program (MA, MS, MFA, PhD) at the University of Memphis, filing this form will not substitute the Certificate for the major degree, but will add the Certificate to the student's list of degree objectives.

4. Complete the two core courses (ANTH/ARTH 7661 and 7662) with a minimum 3.0 GPA.

5. Successfully complete two internships (ANTH/ARTH 7669).

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.

6. Complete two elective courses approved by the program coordinator (Dr. Luebbers) while maintaining a minimum 3.0 GPA.

7. Complete a graduate degree (MA, MS, MFA, or PhD) in a related discipline.

8. Obtain the Graduate Certificate -

A. For students who entered the Museum Studies Certificate Program while in pursuit of an advanced degree (MA, MS, MFA, PhD).

The Graduate Certificate can not be awarded until all requirements for the major degree (MA, MS, MFA, PhD) have also been completed. At that time, both the major degree and the graduate certificate will be conferred by the University of Memphis.

To be awarded the Certificate, the student must file a Graduate Certificate Program Candidacy form at the same time (if all six required courses have been completed) they file the Master's or Doctoral Degree Candidacy form with the Graduate School of the University of Memphis. The Graduate Certificate Candidacy form must include all appropriate signatures.

Graduate Certificate Program Candidacy form
To be filled out upon completion of all required coursework for both the Museum Studies (18 approved units) and major degree programs.

B. For students who entered the Museum Studies Certificate Program already in possession of an advanced degree (MA, MS, MFA, PhD).

To be awarded the Certificate, the student must file the Graduate Certificate Program Candidacy form with the Graduate School of the University of Memphis once all the Museum Studies program requirements have been satisfied. The Graduate Certificate form must include all appropriate signatures.
