The program offers graduate-level courses appropriate for those interested in museum careers. It is designed to give a broad overview of museum history as well as a solid grounding in museological theory and practice.

This certificate program is open to both degree and non-degree seeking students. Two core courses (ARH 5850 & ARH 5851) and an internship are program requirements. Internships for 6 credits may be completed at approved institutions.
