In the CSULB School of Art’s graduate program in Museum and Curatorial Studies, students learn the history of museums and exhibitions, methods of cultural analysis and interpretation, as well as the planning, design and production of art exhibitions. With an emphasis on contemporary art, the program combines a dynamic course of study in art history and theory with hands−on practice of gallery and museum work. The partnership between the University Art Museum and the Museum Studies program allows students to acquire first−hand experience in museum work through specialized courses, directed internships and hands−on exhibition preparation and implementation, including an annual exhibition presented in the museum and curated by each cohort.

For more information on the Museum Studies program visit the School of Art website.
