Tuition & Funding

Our program is a 36-credit-hour degree. KU's Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships provides a cost estimator (based on credit hours, student fees, residency status, etc.) that prospective and current students can use to calculate fees. Further information about tuition and other fees is available on the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships website.

Financial Aid

The Museum Studies Program cannot guarantee funding for students. We constantly work with other departments across campus to locate funding opportunities, such as teaching assistantships, for which our students are qualified. Students are also encouraged to contact the Museum Studies Program for other possible resources. Many of our students find career-related jobs and paid internships on campus or in nearby communities. To research and apply to on-campus opportuntiies including graduate teaching or research assistantships and student-hourly positions, go to KU's Employment site.

The University of Kansas is committed to providing programs and activities to all persons, regardless of race, religion, color, sex, disability, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, marital status, parental status, age, or veteran status.
