Grounded in research-based best practices, the Museology Graduate Program values innovation, critical thinking and leadership. It is a two year interdisciplinary course of study meant to cultivate the tools and knowledge for students to contribute meaningfully to the work of museums, informal learning environments and other valuable cultural institutions.
Our faculty provide access to a broad range of specializations in the field while actively engaging students in a range of research projects and areas of professional practice.
Our facilities are based at the University of Washington Tower and the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture, giving students access to the Burke's extensive resources. We also collaborate with many other area museums including a current grant funded audience research project partnering with the Woodland Park Zoo.
Our program is based at University of Washington in Seattle, WA, a beautiful environmentally friendly and culturally-vibrant city. For more about the experience of living and studying in Seattle, please see our Experience Page.
