    Museum Studies

The Master of Arts in Museum Studies is the only program of its kind in the State of Louisiana.

The program can be completed entirely online or on campus. Students matriculating in the program will undertake a rigorous course of learning in Museology, the branch of knowledge dedicated to the study of the theories, procedures, and managerial concepts of museums: institutions for the acquisition, preservation, study and exhibition of works of artistic, historical or scientific value.

Practical application of course work is achieved through internships with local, regional and national museums, which serve as extended classrooms. Students will examine options for employment, which will prepare graduates of the program to pursue careers in a variety of local, regional and national museums, campus museums, private galleries and historical associations.


The Southern University System was the first HBCU system in the United States.
