Department of Educational Leadership

The program is designed to prepare 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.Taking advantage of our unique location, students in the Museum Education Masters program work and learn in class and on site at world-class institutions like the Newseum, Smithsonian, US Capitol, and the American Alliance of Museums to build their portfolios as advocates for museum accessibility and accountability.
