Tuition and Curriculum
Certificate in Museum Studies
The Tufts museum studies certificate program is designed for recent college graduates, career changers, and those who currently work in museums. To complete the certificate, four courses and an internship are required.
Students build valuable professional networks with guest speakers, discounts to area museums, and membership in the New England Museum Association.
Certificate students choose concentrations in:

The concentration guides your courses selection and determines your academic advisor. Students interested in careers in science or children's museums will receive advising from the program director (and should check "Other" on the application).
