The MA in History and Museum Studies combines theory and practice by bringing together scholars of the Tufts Department of History and professional experts in Museum Studies. As a student in this program, you will learn both historical scholarship and its practical application in preparation for a career in public history or museum work.
Students in the History and Museum Studies master's program take courses in history and museum studies simultaneously. They learn all aspects of museum operations, learn to interpret primary and secondary sources, and understand broad outlines of historical interpretation and narrative. Graduates of this program typically pursue careers as curators, collections managers, educators, and administrators in historic houses, sites, and museums. Students also benefit from Tufts location in the Greater Boston area, one of America's most important hubs for museums and historical societies.
