Museum Studies

 

Offered by the Faculty of Information, the Master of Museum Studies (MMSt) program prepares students for future involvement in museums and related cultural agencies. The program examines the theoretical body of knowledge of museology as a necessary context for professional practice. 

The MMSt program is the only English-speaking Master's program of its kind in Canada. The program features an integrated learning approach that links theory with practice. Areas of focus include: Collections, Curatorship, Digital Heritage, Global Cultures & Museums, Museum Education & Programming, and Museum Management. Both a course-based and a thesis option are available.

The Faculty of Information also provides a Concurrent Registration Option whereby students may register concurrently in the Master of Information and Master of Museum Studies programs.
