Graduate Program


Tufts offers these museum studies graduate degree options:

Each Master of Arts program has its own requirements, but each includes both required and elective museum studies courses. All are designed as two-year, full time programs, but some departments may offer other options.

Applying to a Graduate Program from the Certificate Program

We welcome applications from current museum studies students who wish to apply to a graduate program at Tufts, and try to make the process as smooth as possible. Interested students should speak to their academic advisors and the graduate advisors of the department, before applying. If accepted into a degree program, a Museum Studies Certificate student may transfer up to four eligible museum studies courses earned through the Certificate Program at no additional charge.
