The Master of Arts program in Museum Education is a study program within the art education department at Boston University. Students learn to teach visual art in a museum setting, design curricula for museum educational programs and perform curatorial and administrative duties associated with museum education departments. The program prepares students to address an art museum's contemporary educational needs through training in education, museum studies, and arts administration. Skills gained are also applicable to art education programming in history and science museums.
Museum education students take courses from three University departments: art history, art education, and arts administration. The Master of Arts in Museum Education program is designed for students who have earned a BA or BFA degrees in visual arts or art history and wish to teach in cultural institutions other than public schools.
