MFS Graduate Program - Admissions

Applicants to the Museum and Field Studies program typically begin by contacting one or more potential advisors to discuss their museum studies interests and possible research topics. We strongly recommend that prospective students contact faculty members prior to the application deadline.

The program only admits applicants for the fall semester. For domestic applicants the deadline is January 15 of the same calendar year.  For international applicants the deadline is December 1 of the prior calendar year.  All application materials must be received by this deadline, as incomplete applications cannot be considered.

Applications will be reviewed January through March, and notification should take place by mid-April.
