Students earn the Master of Arts degree in Museum Studies by successfully completing 36 semester hours of course work which include six semester hours of museum internship, thesis or master's project. A graduate minor of nine semester hours in Museum Studies is also possible. A maximum of six semester hours of graduate study in museum-related courses may be transferred from an accredited institution of higher learning toward a master's degree in Museum Studies at Baylor University, subject to certain restrictions.
The graduate-level minor in Museum Studies provides students in other programs a solid introduction to the museum field, to different aspects of the museum profession, and to the study of artifacts of aesthetic or historic significance. The minor requires nine semester hours.
