Museum Studies and African and African-American Studies offer joint master’s degrees with coordinated curricula so students are able to complete two M.A. degrees in three years. Fifteen graduate credit hours are applied to both programs, allowing students to complete a 33-credit-hour AAAS degree and a 36-credit-hour Museum Studies degree with just 54 graduate credits.
This program of study is designed to enhance and diversify opportunities for graduate students who are motivated to enter the cultural heritage field as specialists in African and African-American Studies. It also allows students to expand their contacts with faculty, enhance their professional networks, and deepen their knowledge of both fields of study.
KU Museum Studies offers personal attention in a small, selective program with all courses taught by world-class faculty members and museum professionals from leading institutions. The breadth of specialties and facilities at KU allows students to pursue their own individual interest, such as paleontology, entomology, environmental history and much more.
