The Museum Education Program prepares graduates for work fulfilling the educational mission of art, history, or science museums; zoos, aquaria, or nature centers; and historical societies or sites. Graduates also qualify to serve as liaisons between schools and museums and as professionals in museum-related private and public agencies.

Students intern at world-class institutions like the Smithsonian, U.S. Capitol, and the National Gallery of Art, where, combined with their coursework, they build their portfolios as advocates for museum accessibility and accountability.

Each cohort begins their full-time, fourteen-month program in the summer. The application deadline is March 1. If you would like to be considered for tuition support, please apply by January 15.
