The Graduate Certificate in Museum Studies is an 18- credit program intended to prepare students for professional employment in museums and historic sites. The program offers graduate level courses appropriate for museum work as well as some cross-listed courses from associated academic disciplines.

Courses are most appropriate for people interested in museum careers and are designed to give a broad overview of museum history as well as a solid grounding in museological theory and practice. In accordance with the mission of FIU, attention is given to issues of diversity and multiculturalism, and the relationship of museums to changing populations and interdisciplinary trends in a variety of different collecting environments ranging from the arts to history, anthropology, archaeology, and the sciences.

This certificate program is open to both degree- and non-degree seeking students. Two core courses and an internship are required. Students are encouraged to pursue a variety of courses of study to address diverse museum situations. Internships for 6 credits may be completed at approved institutions.
