The Department of Art and Music at Seton Hall University offers a Master of Arts (M.A.) in Museum Professions. The program prepares students for professional careers in museums and other cultural institutions through challenging coursework in museum history and theory, the interpretation of visual and material culture, museum management, resource development, legal issues, collections management and care, museum education, museum technologies, and exhibition development. Annual summer seminars in Paris, Rome, or Berlin further enrich the curriculum.
This 39-credit program offers four professional tracks: Museum Education, Museum Management, Museum Registration, and Exhibition Development. These diverse offerings are provided through cooperation with other departments and schools at Seton Hall University, and through collaboration with museums and museum professionals who serve as advisers and faculty for the program.
This program is designed for recent college graduates, people seeking a career change, and museum employees who wish to improve their skills. Courses are offered in the evenings and on Saturdays to accommodate both full-time and part-time students.
