An individual who enrolls in master-level studies will engage in the specialized study of a professional career field. This postgraduate degree demonstrates an advanced mastery of the subject, and it typically takes one to three years to complete.

What is a Master in Archival Science? This is an advanced degree program that prepares students for a career managing documents. Preservation, archiving and digitization are just a few of the ways that a graduate may interact professionally with current or historical records, documents, art, books and other objects. For example, a professional may analyze topics such as equality and human rights through the management of cultural artifacts while dealing with issues involving the care and use of the collection.

Knowledge of record keeping and digitization is useful across professions, and most preservation work involves a sharp eye for detail. Students who develop these skills and abilities are likely to achieve leadership positions within the field.

Location and level of specification are factors that affect the cost of archival science programs at various universities and learning institutions. Researching the features that provide the desired outcome can help a student to identify the right program and come to an estimation of the financial requirements involved.

Individuals who earn a master’s degree in archives and records management, museum studies and related specializations within the field of archival science may find positions within museums such as curation, archiving and exhibition design. A graduate could work as a digital asset manager, a privacy and access specialist or a records manager for a corporation, government agency, health care facility or university.

Students generally have the option to enroll with a full-time or part-time status, and online classes are often available for those who require a flexible schedule or are not able to move to the region where the desired university is located. To discover the opportunity that fulfills your goals, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
