Museum Studies Graduate Program Approved


On July 19, 2016, the New Mexico State Board of Finance approved the new Master of Museum Studies Graduate degree program at the University of New Mexico.  The approval was the final step in a long review process by the university, state academic councils and New Mexico state government.  The degree program will offer students an opportunity to complete a Master of Art or a Master of Science in Museum Studies with a flexible curriculum of 33 required credit hours culminating in a Master’s project or thesis.  Museum Studies staff are moving ahead with preparations to launch the degree program, which will begin accepting applications from prospective students in Fall 2016.  For information on the application and admission process, available courses, internship opportunities, and financial support, visit the Museum Studies website:
