Our program at a glance

We are a two-year, full-time, in-person program based on the University of Washington’s main Seattle campus. We are a people-centered program and operate on a cohort model because we believe the most powerful learning happens as part of a community. We embrace the interdisciplinarity inherent in museum studies and maintain a broad and flexible curriculum adaptable to students’ unique backgrounds and interests.
