Baylor > Welcome > Prospective Students > Admissions


New students are admitted for the fall semester only. An applicant for the master�s degree in museum studies should have a baccalaureate degree, documentation of courses taken and GPA earned in previous college or university study. Applications are considered on a rolling basis until the class is filled. Students wishing to be considered for a graduate assistantship, which is the principle form of financial aid in the department, should have their applications complete by March 1. The application consists of transcripts from all undergraduate and graduate institutions, completion of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), at least two letters of recommendation, and a personal statement explaining their interest in museums and museum studies, and why they are a good fit for Baylor. The admissions committee looks carefully at academic credentials, but is also interested in previous experiences that show familiarity with and aptitude for museums and the museum profession.

You may apply online at the Graduate School website. You may also download or request a paper application from that site.
