Credit Requirements

The Museum Studies Program is open to any fully matriculated graduate student at the University of Delaware. The certificate requires a minimum of 12 hours of course work. You are welcome to take additional credit hours as your schedule permits. Students who have registered to receive the certificate always receive priority in course registration. The Museum Studies Certificate appears on your transcript as a “concentration.”

All students are required to take MSST 600: Introduction to Museums (3 credits).

All students are required to complete MSST 804: Internship (3 credits).

All students are required to take one Museum Studies core course (3 credits).

The remaining credits are taken as a Museum Studies elective. Students may choose from the list in the MSST intake form (below) or may petition to have another related course apply for these credits. Students may also use three approved one-credit courses to fulfill this requirement. Students attending the Winterthur Program in American Material Culture may use EAMC 601 (Summer Institute) as their MSST elective.

The current list of Museum Studies core courses and electives is available on the Museum Studies Credit Checklist form. Download this as a .pdf: msst-certificate-checklist-2016
