Course Information | View Program Requirements Page
The new Museum Studies College-Approved certificate is an 18-credit program offered on the College's Canton Campus. The curriculum has been specifically designed to prepare students for internships, and entry-level positions in museums, art galleries and organizations, or for advanced study. The fundamentals aquired in this program may lead to work opportunities in curatorial or educational positions in the many museums and galleries in the greater Boston area. Students may elect to work within departments assisting with collections management, education coordination or as an exhibition assistant.

Students in the Museum Studies Program at Massasoit's Canton Campus have special access to the collection of the Milton Art Museum on the Canton Campus. The MAM has a significant collection of Asian art and prints by artists such as Chagall, Cezanne, Bonnard, Manet, Picasso, and Renoir. The resources of the on-site, Akillian Gallery, are used in providing an opportunity for students to be actively involved in exhibition design and management.
