We offer support to jump-start your career
Museology provides support throughout your two years via quarterly advising with both our Graduate Advisor and faculty mentors. These chats help us to understand your skills and preferences and allow us to give targeted advice on different ways you can achieve your goals.
We offer several workshops throughout the year focusing on building professional skills like communication, networking, and work/life balance.
You’ll build your portfolio during your classwork as you move through the program. Grant writing samples, exhibit designs, exhibit installations, collections projects, evaluation studies, public programs, and more!
