Museology Master of Arts Program

The Museology Program partners with other institutions and programs to advance the relevance and effectiveness of museums and museum professionals. Examples of special initiatives include:

  • Emerging Curator Initiative is a collaborative venture shared between the Kirkland Arts Center (KAC) in Kirkland, WA and the Museology Graduate Program to provide a museology graduate student with the opportunity to plan and execute an exhibition hosted in the KAC Gallery as the focus of the student’s master’s project. Once selected, the student works closely with representatives of both organizations to shape their concept, define their inquiry, and connect that framework to artwork that expresses it. This collaboration provides a bridge between the academic and professional world and creates an educational experience that benefits the “emerging” student curator, regional artists, and the public.
