M.A. in Museum Education
The master’s program in museum education prepares students to work with audiences of all ages, interests and abilities in the informal learning environment of a museum. We seek applicants who can bring new thinking and leadership to the field at a time when museums are increasingly focusing their resources on community engagement, civic issues, and global problems.
Students take courses in education, human development, psychology, museum studies and content areas such as history or art history simultaneously. Graduates of this program typically pursue careers as educators or administrators in museums of all types and sizes.
There are no faculty listings that match the criteria for this program.
The application deadline for fall enrollment is January 15.
GRE, transcript, statement of purpose, and letters of recommendation required. GRE scores are not required for current Tufts undergraduates applying for an M.A.
